DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer.
  • In another large saucepan sprayed with cooking spray, heat oil over medium high heat. Cook onion and garlic for 5 minutes or until onion is softened. (Can be made ahead up to this point).
  • Stir in rice, coating the rice with the garlic-onion mixture. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Add 1/2 cup simmering broth to the rice mixture. Cook, stirring until liquid is all absorbed. Continue adding liquid until all has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  • Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a slow bubbling simmer. Taste the risotto before adding the prawns. It should taste creamy, and the rice "al dente".
  • Just before serving main meal, add prawns and goat cheese. Cook for 2 minutes longer or until prawns are cooked through and the cheese has melted. Add the parmasan cheese and pepper.
  • Remove from heat. Add the basil.
  • Options: In some recipes, white wine is added to the broth mixture. Decrease the chicken broth a bit to accommodate the wine, using only about 1/2 cup.
