Inspired by http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Fennel-Risotto/Detail.aspx The silken tofu and soymilk combination is to replace 1 cup heavy cream.

Recipe Ingredients for Fennel Risotto

4 bulb Fennel
1 tablespoon butter (Earth Balance)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups uncooked Arborio rice
7 cups vegetable broth
6 oz silken tofu
1/2 cup soymilk
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 freshly ground black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Fennel Risotto

  1. Cut the base off of the fennel bulbs, and cut a cone shape into the base to remove the core. Slice the fennel vertically (lengthwise) into 1/4 inch thick slices. Slices can be chopped in food processer if they are too large.

  2. Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed stock pot over medium heat. Cook onions and fennel in butter for 2 minutes. Stir in the rice; cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until lightly toasted. Stir in 1 cup vegetable broth; continue stirring until liquid is almost completely absorbed. Repeat this process with remaining broth, stirring constantly. Incorporating the broth should take 15 to 20 minutes in all.

  3. Put silken tofu and soymilk in food processor or blender and blend until thick and creamy and there are no lumps. This is a substitute for heavy cream - use 1 cup of this mixture in this recipe.

  4. Stir in "cream" and parsley, and cook until rice is done and risotto is thick and creamy. Season to taste with black pepper. Divide risotto among 6 bowls and serve.
