Rice, Mushrooms, Cuttlefish, and Artichoke Oh My!

Olga from Las Cosas de Olga and Olga’s Recipes was the host of the August Daring Cooks Challenge. She chose a delicious Spanish recipe, Rice with mushrooms, cuttlefish and artichokes by José Andrés, one of the most important Spanish Chefs at the moment.

All right blogger followers, I have a huge confession. The due date for this challenge was on August 14th. This challenge was not started until the 15th. I apologize my fellow Daring Cooks as all of you are so great and you get your challenges done. For me it has been a crazy month filled with numerous work project as well as various family visits.

So I present to you, my completed challenge

Wow! Can I tell you how delicious this dish was? I used arborio rice as that was what I had on hand. The rice was creamy and the cuttle fish was perfect. I even added some shrimp to the mix. A friend of mine is staying with me for a bit, so it was a great opportunity to share this dish among friends and family. Everyone had seconds and even thirds. Delicious!
