ISO Help - Risotto Serving Size

Can anyone give me a measurement for a "per serving" of arborio rice for risotto?

Look at the number of servings a recipe provides and divide the ingredients by that number.

Any time I have a question regarding an Italian recipe, this is where I go.

Lidia's Italy: Recipes: Basic Risotto

You don't have to use wine if you choose not to.

Wink

On the plus side, if you make too much risotto then you can use it for arancini (italian rice balls with cheese)

My package says "1/4 C. dry" for the Nutritional Facts then the recipe on the package (not the one I use though) says to use 1 C and you get 3 C's of cooked rice. Does that help?

I would plan at least a cup of cooked rice for each serving and add some extra. I should note we have several guys that are 6'2" to 6'5" tall that would be eating what ever is on the table and one cup might be the appetizer for any one of them.

Most of the recipes I've looked at seem to average somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 cup per serving. For just basic risotto, I would go with the higher number. If you're adding a lot of other ingredients (veggies, meat, or seafood), I would use the lower number.

The serving size for potatoes, rice, corn, peas, macaroni etc. is 1/2 cup, cooked.

Serving sizes are up to personal interpretation and how you serve the dish. Is risotto going to be the first course or is it going to be the whole meal?

Oh absolutely. A big seller in these here parts. During my working days, they were a great food lunch. And every Italian Festival during the summer, you will find several carts selling them. So delicious! Well worth making a lot of extra rice just for them.

Excellent suggestion creative.
