Next time, add a spoonful of crème fraîche to the cooked quinoa for a creamier, richer texture.
Make the risotto the day before. Reheat the risotto and veg for topping until piping hot, then top with the crispy onions to serve.
You’ll find tubs of crispy fried onions in large supermarkets. They add a textural finishing touch to all dishes from soups to pastas to risottos.
