Apple Risotto

Apple Risotto created by Joseph F.

A surprising main dish with the sharp taste of apples and cheese. The first time that I was served this by my dear friend, Claire, I couldn't get enough. I begged for the recipe, made it the next evening, and feel NO guilt over eating it all! Served with steamed asparagus and a nice crisp white wine, it is the perfect meal for friends and family.

  • Heat the chicken broth in a small saucepan until boiling. Adjust the heat to a steady simmer.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy, large saucepan over low heat. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes.
  • Add the rice and 1 cup of the apples; saute, stirring for 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the wine and boil, stirring, until wine is reduced by half.
  • Add enough hot broth (about 1/2 cup) to just cover the rice. Simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until almost all of the broth has been absorbed, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Continue adding hot broth in 1/2 cup incriments, stirring constantly, until all broth is absorbed and rice is pulling away from the pan. During last 5 minutes, add remaining 1 cup of diced apples.
  • Cook until creamy and center is done. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in last 2 tablespoons of butter with the parmesian cheese, stir well. Serve immediately with additional cheese.

    Pour apple juice to enchance the apple flavor and put the chopped apple afterwards. You do it to maintain the crisp of the apple

    Wow! This was outstanding. We would like to give it more than 5 stars. Served it as a side dish and it had to sit about 20 minutes while I was preparing the rest of the dinner. This is definitely headed to my Best of Cookbook. Thanks for sharing.

    Made half the recipe to serve as a side dish with Famous Pork Chops #376962. This was a perfect combination and made a very elegant dinner. Thanks for sharing Swedie. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
