Recipe Ingredients for Risotto with Gorgonzola and Artichoke hearts

2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
1 3/4 cups water
2 tbsp butter
1 1 cup chopped artichoke hearts
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup arborio rice
1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Risotto with Gorgonzola and Artichoke hearts

  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, heat the broth and water until simmering. Keep on low heat so that the liquids stay warm throughout cooking time.

  2. While the broth is heating, heat the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the artichokes and garlic, cook, stirring, 10 seconds. Add the rice; cook, stirring, until rice is coated with butter.

  3. Add the broth to the rice mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until the rice has absorbed the liquid. **You should make the next addition of liquid when you can draw a clear bath on the bottom of the pot as you scrape through the rice with a wooden spoon. This will happen quickly at first, and take longer as you near the end of the cooking time.**

  4. Stir in the cheeses until melted.
