Risotto with Fall Harvest Veggies
Ready to Roast Veggie Combo
2 quarts Misty Knoll Chicken Stock
2 cups Arborio Rice
Dry white wine
Place Ready to Roast Veggie Combo in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt. Cook for 20 minutes on 350 until soft
Coat a saucepan with remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Saute the remaining 1/2 onion and garlic clove. Add the rice and stir quickly until it is well-coated and opaque, 1 minute. This step cooks the starchy coating and prevents the grains from sticking. Stir in wine and cook until it is nearly all evaporated.
Now, with a ladle, add 1 cup of the warm broth and cook, stirring, until the rice has absorbed the liquid. Add the remaining broth, 1 cup at a time. Continue to cook and stir, allowing the rice to absorb each addition of broth before adding more. The risotto should be slightly firm and creamy, not mushy. Transfer the roasted veggies to the rice. Stir in Parmesan cheese, cook briefly until melted.
