Ingredients

4 tsp
Sensations by Compliments Extra Virgin 100% Olive Oil, divided
20 mL
1
small onion, finely chopped
1 cup
Compliments Arborio Rice
250 mL
1/2 cup
white wine
125 mL
1 carton
Compliments Chicken Broth - 35% Less Sodium, hot
900 mL
1/4 cup
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
60 mL
1/2 tsp
pepper
2 mL

Method

Step 1
Start by heating 2 tsp (10 mL) of olive oil in a heavy-bottomed, medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté, stirring until translucent, about 3 min. Next, add the rice, stirring to coat in oil until lightly toasted, about 2 min. Tip: Toast the rice to prevent the kernels from absorbing too much moisture and making the dish mushy.
Step 2
Add the wine and stir until it's almost fully absorbed. Then, add the chicken broth one cup (250 mL) at a time. It's not necessary to stir constantly, but you should stir often. Let the rice almost fully absorb the broth before adding another cup. Tip: Slowly add the broth, one cup at a time.
Step 3
Continue cooking until the rice is creamy, cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 20 min. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and pepper. Serve with a drizzle of the remaining olive oil and a shaving of fresh Parmesan if desired. Tip: Stir occasionally until broth is almost absorbed.
