Progresso Broth

Ingredients

  • 2
    tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1
    medium onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2
    cup dry white wine or apple juice
  • 1 1/2
    cups uncooked Arborio or other short-grain white rice
  • 2
    cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton), warmed
  • 1
    cup warm water
  • 1/4
    cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Melt butter in 12-inch skillet or 4-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook onion in butter, stirring frequently, until tender; reduce heat to medium.
  • 2
    Add wine to onion mixture in skillet; cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in rice. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until edges of kernels are translucent.
  • 3
    Mix broth and water; pour 1/2 cup broth mixture over rice. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender and creamy. Sprinkle with cheese, pepper and parsley.

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Stir in a 10-ounce package of frozen green peas, cooked and drained, just before serving for a colorful side dish.
  • The secret to creamy risotto is adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and cooking with frequent stirring until all the liquid is absorbed before repeating with another 1/2 cup broth.
