I'm glad it turned out. It is fun coming up with additions that will be perfect with the rice.

Thank you Kay. This was my first time with my PC and Risotto also and it worked out wonderful. I looked at several risotto recipes and mixed and matched till I had something my family would like. Let me know what you think.

There are some basics with Risotto:

a. Buy good Rice
B. Rice has no flavor so you need to add things to it. So saute whatever you want to put in the Rice. Butternut squash, mushrooms, onion, seafood, veggie, any combination. Coat the rice with the oil, I actually deglaze with some wine and add the Rice to get a good coating.
C. Use good stock, chicken, Beef, veggie, seafood. Match your flavoring items.
D. Heat the stock so that you don't cool your pan on each addition.
E. Slowly - Patience grasshopper - Patience
F. Taste often - get the texture you want - Al Dente for some - almost soupy for others.

I top mine with really good parm.

beginner, recipe, risotto

ISO Beginner Level Risotto Recipe So DH and I are on Spring Break and doing a gastronomical tour from home. Last night we made falafel with the fixings and have some Greek ideas for Monday. Tonight, however, we would like to head to Italy and try our hand at risotto. I bought Arborio rice but have no idea where to go from there. We are looking for an entry level recipe that doesn't call for a ton of unusual ingredients (we live in a midwest town of 2000 people so the grocery is pretty vanilla and I can say that because it's my dad's store :smile:). Also, any helpful hints out there? Thank you! 3 stars 1 reviews
