We love Risotto at our house. So, I thought that I should share one of our favorite recipes.
2 cups Arborio Rice
olive oil or butter (as much or little as you would like) I use about 4 Tblsp Olive Oil
1/2 Cup White Wine
32 oz Chicken Stock (one box)
Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
Add Olive Oil to a large pan
Add rice and stir for a minute or so
Add White Wine; stir until absorbed
Add Chicken Stock 1/2 cup at a time. Making sure liquid is absorbed before adding another 1/2 cup. Stir constantly. Continue until all chicken stock is used.
Add about 1/4 cup or more Grated Parmesan Cheese
Container of grape tomatoes
two cloves of garlic
lots of Olive Oil
red pepper flakes
In another pan:
Add lots of Olive Oil. No set amount, but I use a lot. It depends on how much you want to drizzle over the rice at the end. I'd guess 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup
Slice garlic. As much as you would like. We use two cloves. Brown them in the Oil and then remove them to add on our plates at the end.
I then cut grape tomatoes in half and add to hot Olive Oil. Be careful, they pop a lot.
Add as much red pepper flakes as you like
Cook until tomatoes are soft
Spoon over Rice, add Fresh Basil, sliced garlic and more fresh grated Parmesan cheese
I think my oldest daughter made this up. It's really good!!!
