Basic Risotto

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by noway

This recipe is on the back of the bag of Lundberg's white arborio, although I have made a few modifications for our taste, such as leaving out the onion. I recommend chicken broth instead of water because it adds a lot more flavor.

A lovely basic risotto recipe with great scope for variations. I added minced garlic in step 1. I needed to use about 3 cups of broth for the rice to be fully cooked. Next time I'll add chopped mushrooms! Thanks PAC baby for another lovely recipe!
