rice, stirring constantly in one direction, until well-coated. Remove the

PANTRY TIPS: Use traditional Japanese ingredients like sushi rice and miso
to create risotto with an Asian accent. The short-grained sushi rice
absorbs sake, a rice wine, and miso broth to achieve the same creamy
texture that characterizes perfect risotto. For the broth, use a savory
version of the miso. As with any risotto, Japanese risotto should be served

Garnish with delicate enoki mushrooms, chopped scallions, and spicy kaiware
radish sprouts. Serves 4 PER SERVING
