Rather than simply stirring in wilted spinach at the end, like so many recipes call for, this one includes a neat trick: First, you wilt spinach in a pot of water, and then you puree this mixture to make a spinach "soup" that's used in lieu of the usual chicken or vegetable (or other) broth in making the risotto. As a result, you get a dish that tastes like spinach through and through (in a good way!).

Ingredients

  • 300 grams spinach leaves
  • 1 liter water
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 onion (small, peeled and chopped)
  • 170 grams short grain rice
  • salt
  • pine nuts (toasted, optional)

Directions

  1. In a soup pot, boil the spinach in salted water. Once cooked, blend together adding water if necessary until it makes a “soup.”
  2. Saute the onion in a tablespoon of oil for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the rice, stir and heat through a few minutes.
  4. Little by little, add the spinach soup to the rice. Stir constantly until the rice becomes creamy. Once a ladleful of soup is absorbed, add another until the rice is cooked completely. Salt to taste.
  5. Plate and decorate with toasted pine nuts. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
