Risotto Rice Recipe

Risotto Rice Ingredients:

Risotto Rice Recipe

  • 1 medium-size onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cups or more chicken stock/broth, canned or homemade
  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

How to make Risotto Rice:

  • Peel and finely chop the onion.
  • Melt the butter in a big saucepan over medium heat, stirring regularly.
  • Add the onion and cook, continuing to stir, until it turns soft and translucent. Turn the heat down if the onion starts to brown.
  • Meanwhile, pour the chicken broth into a separate saucepan, set over medium heat, and bring to a gentle simmer. Adjust the heat as needed to maintain this simmer the whole time you are preparing the risotto.
  • Once the onion is soft, add the rice and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes. Adjust the heat as necessary — if the rice is cooked at too high a heat, it will turn brown and take on an undesirable flavour
