How To Make Risotto with Radicchio and Smoked Mozzarella

For this risotto recipe, the rice is cooked in wine and broth with vegetables until tender and thick. Top with cheese for a delicious finish!

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 5cupscanned low sodium chicken broth,or homemade stock
  • 1cupwater
  • 2tbspolive oil
  • 1onion
  • 2cupArborio rice
  • ½cupdry white wine
  • tspsalt
  • ½lbhead radicchio,(1 head)
  • 3tbspfresh parsley,chopped
  • ¼tspfresh ground black pepper
  • 2tbspbutter
  • ½lbsmoked mozzarella

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the broth and water to a simmer.

  2. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat.

  3. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until translucent.

  4. Add the rice to the pot and stir for about 2 minutes until it begins to turn opaque.

  5. Add the wine and salt and cook, stirring frequently until all the wine has been absorbed.

  6. Add about ½ cup of the simmering broth to the rice and cook, stirring frequently, until the broth has been completely absorbed. The rice and broth should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed.

  7. Continue cooking the rice, adding broth ½ cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb the broth before adding the next ½ cup. Cook the rice in this way for about 20 minutes until almost tender.

  8. Add the radicchio and parsley and cook for about 5 minutes more until the radicchio and the rice are tender.

  9. The broth that hasn’t been absorbed should be thickened by the starch from the rice. Add water or broth as needed.

  10. Stir the pepper and the butter into the risotto. Add the mozzarella and stir until it melts into a web.
