Satarash, or Risotto stir fry: a contemporary take on a classic. Round grain rice simmered in a sauce of bell peppers, yellow onions and tomatoes for a light and filling vegetarian favorite.

Veggie and Rice Stir Fry Risotto Satarash (Sataraš)

Sataraš is a light Balkan stew, a mix between ratatouille and stir fry. It's all about the soft, smothered (in a good way) vegetables made directly on stovetop, enriched with round grained rice. A perfect vegetarian one-pan dish.
