Recipe by JackieOhNo
READY IN: 55mins




  • Heat 2 T. butter and the oil in large saucepan over low heat. When butter foams, stir inleek and cook, stirring occasionally, until leek is tender and wilted, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pour broth into small saucepan. Heat until hot and keep hot over very low heat.
  • Add rice to leek, increase heat to medium, and cook, stirring constantly, until edges of grains are transparent, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour enough broth into rice to cover by 1/4 inch. Adjusting heat to maintain a lively simmer (not steady boil), simmer, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed and you can see bottom of pan as you stir, about 5 minutes.
  • Add more broth to cover rice by 1/4 inch and continue to simmer, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed. Repeat adding broth and simmering until rice is tender, but still slightly firm at the center; it should take about 20 minutes from time first liquid is added. Season to taste with salt and pepper halfway through cooking and stir in carrot, turnip and celery.
  • Stir enough broth into risotto to make it creamy. Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter, the cheese, tomatoes, and garlic. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve hot.
