  • 1
    Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion, garlic, bell peppers and mushrooms in oil 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are crisp-tender. Stir in rice. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 2
    Stir in 1/2 cup of the broth. Cook, stir-ring constantly, until liquid is completely absorbed. Stir in an additional 1/2 cup broth. Continue cooking about 20 minutes, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time after previous additions have been absorbed and stirring constantly, until rice is creamy and just tender; remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients. Let stand 1 minute.

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Risotto is done when enough broth has been absorbed to make the rice just tender and the mixture creamy.
  • For the meat lovers in your family, broil boneless, skinless chicken breasts brushed with Italian dressing, and serve this colorful risotto as a side dish.
