For a change from the traditional white wine used to deglaze rice in risotto, replace it with beer of your choice. Here are the usual ingredients:

  • 2 cups of round rice
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 can of drained button mushrooms
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup of beer

To prepare, start by chopping the onion. Then heat a saucepan over medium heat with two tablespoons of olive oil. Cook the onion until brown for about five minutes before adding two cups of round rice to the pan. Turn gently with a wooden spoon to coat it with oil. Now is the time to add the beer, mixing slowly. Now add:

  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • the mushrooms

Let simmer until rice is cooked. Finally, season to your taste and add the pepper. Enjoy your food!

Rich in mineral salts and vitamin B, beer has many hydrating properties. So, opt for a beer made from cereals to tone and revitalize the skin. As the beauty experts at Belle naturelle point out, beer has numerous benefits for the skin. Apply it to the face using a cotton pad mornings and evenings for very soft skin. As beer also has anti-bacterial properties, it can be beneficial in the treatment of chronic acne. All you have to do is make a mask by mixing brewer’s yeast with a little lukewarm water until you obtain a homogeneous paste. Then apply it to your face and leave for 20 minutes. Finally, rinse with clean water. Purified skin guaranteed!

Beer is also good for our hair! This is because malt and hops repair and protect hair cells. For shiny, soft hair, just pour a glass of beer and rinse between shampoo and mask. You can also use beer as a conditioner. Proceed as follows:

  • Apply to lengths
  • Rinse thoroughly

Thanks to this homemade conditioner, your hair will become softer. In addition to its benefits for hair, beer is also beneficial for the beard. Take the opportunity to nourish it!
