I'm liking the idea of nuts. I've been looking for a way to put in some protein :-)

You could marinate some tofu in seasonings that would go with the rest of the ingredients and add that.

I like tofu and risotto....but I don't think I'd like them together!

I promised myself that I'd use only ingredients that aren't traditionally "meat substitutes". Despite the fact that tofu isn't just a substitute, I still don't think I could use it :-) Thanks for the idea, though!

I like a pea risotto. And as a suggestion, you could use coconut milk/cream for flavouring.

use good olive oil, your veg stock, a little white wine, saffron, and then there are all kinds of veg to use roasted garlic, shallots, peas...mushrooms of various kinds sauteed and added in the last few minutes. It will be wonderful.

Butternut squash is really good in a risotto. If you roast it first, then add to the risotto rice. It's lovely

butternut squash and hazelnuts are awesome together, or (and I did this recently and wowed even my meat lovers) roast delicata squash (the green striped ones) and serve a mushroom and spinach risotto in it.
