Low-Maintenance Risotto

Do you love risotto, but hate all that stirring?  Well, no more!  This recipe produces a rich and creamy risotto without all the work. If you prefer a bit more to your risotto add some fresh or frozen peas and/or arugula. Enjoy!

1 tablespoons  unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
kosher salt and black pepper
1 cup  Arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed
1/2 cup grated Parmesan (2 ounces), plus more for serving
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Melt 1 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes.

Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until absorbed.
Add half the broth (1 ¾ cups) and simmer, stirring once, until absorbed, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the remaining broth and simmer, stirring once, until the rice is tender and creamy, 8 to 10 minutes. (If the rice is not cooked through and the mixture is dry, add more broth and continue to cook until tender.)

Stir in the Parmesan and sprinkle with the parsley and additional Parmesan, if desired.

Serves: 4
Total Time: 35 minutes
