Foodie Love ~ Delicious Risotto

There is nothing more delicious than home made risotto.

I love risotto so much. It is such a nice alternative to regular rice or potatoes and you can do so much with it. It is also pretty much idiot proof. I had been craving parmesan risotto for a while. It is so creamy and delicious and is usually only served at higher end restaurants. So I decided to whip some up at home instead!

The Necessities:
~ 1 Tbs of Butter of Margarine
~ 1 Half Yellow Onion Finely Chopped
~ 6 Cups Vegetable Broth
~ 1 1/2 Cups of Arborio Rice
~ 1 Cup of Fresh Parmesan Cheese Finely Grated
~ Salt and Pepper to Taste

The Process:
~ In a large pan, melt butter on medium heat and add the onion. Cook until onion is soft.
~ Add rice and stir until well mixed
~ Add the first 2 cups of broth to the pan

~ While the broth and rice mixture is simmering, shred the parm cheese with a fine shredder

~ Once the rice has absorbed the first 2 cups of broth, add 2 more and allow to simmer down again
~ Once that broth is absorbed, add the last 2 cups of broth

~ Allow all broth to absorb into the rice. Keep your eye on it at all times and stir constantly to keep it from sticking to the bottom and overcooking
~ Add the cheese to the mixture, turn down to low and stir until cheese melts
~ Add salt and pepper to taste and serve!
