Recipe: Baked Risotto
How about the classic Italian dish for christmas dinner?
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
32-ounce carton vegetable broth, preferably low-sodium
2 to 3 cloves garlic, very finely minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the rice with the broth, 1 cup water, and the garlic in a two-quart casserole dish. Cover and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. At the third stirring, stir in one more cup of water. When done, the rice should have a tender and creamy texture.
Season with salt and pepper, then let the risotto stand, covered, for 5 minutes before serving.
