Mr. Food

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 20 min

What You'll Need:

  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup uncooked arborio rice
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

What To Do:

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, heat chicken broth until hot.

  2. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onion and garlic and saute 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir in rice and 1 cup hot broth, stirring constantly until liquid is nearly absorbed. Repeat process, adding remaining broth 1 cup at a time, stirring constantly until each portion of broth is absorbed (about 15 minutes total). Remove from heat.

  3. Stir in cheese, lemon juice, lemon zest, and remaining butter. Serve immediately.

Note: This is great as a side dish, but go ahead and add some cooked shrimp or your favorite vegetable for a tasty main dish.
