Description

Delicious Low Fat Risotto. Easy to Make, just requires lots of stirring.

Ingredients

  • 7 cups Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Shallot, Chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 2-½ cups Wild Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 1-½ cup Arborio Rice
  • ½ cups Dry Cooking Sherry
  • ½ cups Parmegiano-Reggiano, Grated
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

-Bring the broth to a boil in a large pot or saucepan. Reduce the heat so the broth stays at a simmer.

-Heat the oil in a large NONSTICK skillet over medium-high heat.

-Add the shallot and garlic and cook for one minute ( do not let it burn)

-Add the mushrooms and thyme and cook until mushrooms soften. Should take about 4 minutes

-Add the rice and cook for 30 secs to 1 minute. Stir a couple of times.

-Add sherry/wine and cook until almost absorbed while stirring constantly. 1 minute or so

-Add the broth 1 cup or 2 ladlefuls at a time, while stirring. Don’t add more broth until the first amount is almost fully absorbed.

-Continue adding broth stirring and adding more broth until rice is just tender-Taste to tell. You want the rice to be sort of soft.

-Stir in the cheese and pepper

*You might not need to use all the broth.
*Risotto is not hard to make but requires lots of time stirring. Do not stop stirring until the rice is cooked.

I made this for my dinner tonight and it is absolutely amazing! I made a few alterations based on what I had on hand (used a red wine from my fridge, regular button mushrooms, and I halved the recipe since I was making it for myself). I also added peas, which were fabulous!

The only alterations I would probably make next time would be to add a T of butter in with the T of olive oil, since my onions, garlic & mushrooms didn’t seem like they had much “room to groove” in there (I did end up adding in a pat of butter). I also think I might saute the onions, then add the mushrooms & add the garlic next, since it did start to get too brown by the time the mushrooms got in there.

Overall, AMAZING!
