Baked Risotto – Recipes for Kids
“Risotto is a classic Italian dish made of Arborio rice, a
starchy, short-grain variety that cooks to a creamy consistency.
Most well-stocked supermarkets carry it, either near other rice
products or with specialty grains.”
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
Two 15-oz. cans vegetable stock
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
About 1 1/2 cups steamed fresh vegetable of your choice (green
peas, fresh corn kernels, finely chopped asparagus, or sliced
Grated fresh Parmesan cheese for topping [or vegan Parmesan
alternative, like Soymage]
1. Preheat oven to 375[degrees]F.
2. Combine rice with stock, 1 cup water, and garlic in a 2-quart casserole. Cover and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. At the third stirring, stir in 1 cup water. When done, the rice should have a tender and creamy texture.
3. Stir in the vegetable, and let the risotto stand for 5 minutes before serving. Pass around the Parmesan cheese for topping.
