Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Risotto with Peas

1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs diced shallot
1 cup arborio rice
1/2 cup white wine
4 cups chicken stock
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs butter
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Lemon Risotto with Peas

Heat chicken stock in a saucepan and keep at a simmer. In a separate saute pan, heat olive oil in pan over medium heat, add shallot and cook gently until soft. Add rice and toss until all grains are coated. Pour in white wine and stir until most of the liquid is cooked off, then add 1/2 cup of stock. Stir continuously until liquid is absorbed, then add another 1/2 cup of stock. Repeat until rice releases its starches and is soft and creamy (test - rice should have a "bite" but be cooked through. this should take approximately 30 minutes). If needed, add additional hot water. Remove rice from heat and stir in lemon zest, juice, butter, and frozen peas (the heat from the rice will cook them almost immediately). Fold in cheese and serve.
