Recipe Ingredients for Risotto with Broccoli

1 cup broccoli, chopped
2 cups water
2 cubes vegetable stock
3 tablespoons shallots, finely chopped
1 cup rice, uncooked medium grain
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon margarine
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Recipe Directions for Risotto with Broccoli

  1. Steam Broccoli and set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and maintain at a simmer. In a large heavy skillet, cook shallots with PAM over medium heat until tender. Add rice and stir to coat well; cook 3 minutes longer. Add wine and cook until absorbed.

  3. Stir in 1 cup simmering broth. Cook until broth is almost completely absorbed, stirring frequently, then add another cup of simmering broth. Repeat until only about 1/4 cup of broth remains (discard remaining broth); the process should take about 20 minutes. Rice should be slightly firm in center and look creamy.

  4. Add asparagus; heat through. Remove from the heat; add the margarine, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
