Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

5 cups vegetable broth
1-1/2 cups arborio rice
1 cup diced red bell peppers
1/2 cup diced browned onion
1 garlic clove, minced (I used 3)
1 cup corn, frozen or fresh
1/4 cup sliced fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste


Directions

In a saucepan bring broth to a simmer; adjust heat to keep barely simmering.


In another saucepan, combine rice, pepper, onion, garlic, and 3 cups of the hot vegetable broth.


Bring mixture to a simmer over moderately high heat, adjust heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add more hot broth 1 cup at a time, stirring often and waiting until the rice has absorbed most of the liquid before adding more.


After 8 more minutes, the rice should still be a little firm to the bite, and it should have absorbed about 5 cups total liquid.


If the rice seems underdone or the mixture seems dry, add a little more liquid.


Risotto should be creamy, but not soupy.


Remove from heat and stir in basil. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
