Broccoli Risotto

Remember that awesome roasted broccoli recipe? If you don’t, take a look below. As much as I love that broccoli, it’s not exactly a complete meal. So I made some lemony risotto designed to go with it.

Serves 2

½ C. Arborio rice
1 Tb. butter
1/4th onion
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
A dash of white wine
1 2/3 c chicken broth
1/4th cup parmesan
Zest of 1 lemon
A squeeze of lemon juice
Parsley for garnish

1. Brown the Arborio rice in the butter. When it has a nice tan, pour some wine over it. Add
the chopped onion and garlic and stir until liquid is absorbed.
2. Microwave the broth for 2 minutes. Pour a few tablespoons into the rice and stir until it is
absorbed. Repeat, adding splashes of broth, until all of the broth is completely absorbed and
the rice is cooked through.
3. Stir in the lemon zest and squeeze lemon juice over the rice. Sprinkle with parsley and
serve with the roasted broccoli.
