Carrot juice, which replaces some of the broth in this recipe, adds a subtle sweetness that goes well with the nuttiness of the Parmesan cheese.
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup carrot juice
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 small onion, finely chopped
- coarse salt and pepper
- 1 cup long-grain rice
- 1⁄4 cup dry white wine (optional)
- 1⁄3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Combine broth, carrot juice, and 2 cups water in a 2-quart saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
- Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
- Raise heat to medium; add rice and cook, stirring until grains are translucent around the edges, about 3 minutes. Stir in wine, if using; cook until absorbed, about 2 minutes.
- Add 1/2 cup hot broth mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon until most liquid is absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until it is incorporated and rice is tender but still a little firm to the bite, 25 to 30 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon butter and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Divide among dishes, and sprinkle with parsley and more Parmesan.
I loved the flavor of this rice! The sweetness of the carrot and onions was a nice contrast. I used long grain basmati rice which did not get "creamy." Next time I would stick with regular rice or the arborio to get a creamy texture. Made for Football Tag.
Beautiful recipe. I loved the wine, Parmesan and carrot juice. I made the mistake of trying to drink the healthy juice. It's pretty terrible on its own. In the recipe, it's great. Made for football pool.
We made this last night. It was great. Made a great side next to our Salisbury steak!<br/>Thanks. Made for your football win!
