Risotto is a creamy delicacy made with white rice. If you like to stir, you’ll like preparing this dish.

Risotto

INGREDIENTS:
2 to 2 1/2 15-oz. cans chicken broth
4 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. minced onion
1 1/2 c. white rice, uncooked*
2/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese

METHOD:
1. Heat broth until simmering.

2. In a heavy saucepan, heat 2 tbsp. butter with the oil. Sauté onion in butter and oil until golden.

3. Add rice and stir until well coated. Sauté rice briefly, then add 1/2 c. of medium heat, stirring constantly, until rice absorbs liquid. Then add another 1/2 c, broth each time rice dries out. (This will take about 30 minutes. When finished, rice will be creamy and tender, yer firm.)

4. When rice is almost done, add grated cheese and remaining butter. If needed, season with a little salt. Serve immediately. Pass more grated Parmesan cheese at the table.
