 Ingredients List

  • 5 c Chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 1/2 lg Onion; chopped
  • 1 1/2 c Arborio rice
  • 1/2 c Dry white wine
  • 3/4 c Parmesan cheese; grated
  • 1 c Mixed fresh herbs*; finely
  • -Chopped
  • 1/2 c Roasted red peppers; chopped
  • Salt and pepper; to taste


In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the stock to a simmer. Reduce the
heat to low and keep the liquid hot. In a heavy medium saucepan over
medium-low heat, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion, stirring
frequently, until it is translucent, about 8 minutes. To the onion, add
rice and stir until a white spot appears in the center of the grains, about
1 minute. Add wine and stir until it is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Add 3/4

bubbles and is absorbed slowly. Stir until liquid is absorbed. Continue
cooking, adding the liquid 3/4 cup at a time and stirring almost
constantly, until the rice starts to soften, about 10 minutes. Continue
cooking, adding stock 1/2 cup at a time and stirring almost constantly,
until the rice is just tender but slightly firm in the center and the
mixture is creamy, about 10 minutes longer. Add the 3/4 cup Parmesan
cheese, herbs, roasted peppers, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to

*Mixed herbs of your choice, such as: basil, arugula, chives, parsley,
oregano, etc.
