Cook time
Total time
Risotto is a bit labor intensive, but it is well worth the effort and time put into it. Keep in mind that it is very filling, so you will not need a lot of it to feed yourself and your guests.
Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 cup of Arborio rice
  • ½ teaspoon of olive oil
  • 3 to 4 cups of veggie stock
  • ⅛ teaspoon of salt
  • Option: ½ cup of white wine in place of ½ cup of veggie stock
  1. Warm the veggie stock in a pot.
  2. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a separate pot.
  3. Add in the uncooked rice and toast it until some of the grains turn golden.
  4. Add in ½ cup of veggie stock and stir.
  5. Keep stirring slowly.
  6. When the liquid is mostly absorbed, add in another ½ cup of veggie stock.
  7. Repeat this process of stirring, absorbing, and adding stock until the rice is soft and creamy.
  8. Add the salt at the end.
