Description

There's always something showy about risotto and this white wine-laced version is no exception. As it cooks while you stir (and stir), the arborio rice picks up the flavor of sauteed bell peppers and shallots. Vegetable stock is the liquid of choice here, though chicken stock would work well, too. Finished with two secret weapons — creamy goat cheese and dill — this dish sports just the right amount of je ne sais quoi.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 orange bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onions
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 300 grams arborio rice
  • 2 1/2 ounces white wine
  • 1 liter vegetable stock
  • 100 grams goat cheese
  • parmesan cheese
  • dill weed

Directions

  1. 1Soak the shallots in water for 2 minutes, and then drain.
  2. 2In a nonstick skillet, melt the butter on medium heat and saute the onions and bell pepper, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3Add the rice and cook until the grains appear transparent.
  4. 4Add the white wine and allow the liquid to evaporate, and cook for a few minutes.
  5. 5Add the hot stock and cool for 20 minutes.
  6. 6Remove from the heat, stir in the cheeses and serve with a sprinkling of dill.
