Brown Rice and Vegetable Risotto Recipe



Ingredients :

  • 1 quart vegetable broth, or as needed
  • 5 cups water, or as needed
  • ½ pound asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups short-grain brown rice
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 zucchini, diced
  • ½ cup green peas, thawed if frozen
  • ⅔ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Bring vegetable broth and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Add asparagus, reduce heat to low, and simmer until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer asparagus to a bowl of ice water; let chill for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, cover saucepan and keep broth mixture at a near-simmer on low heat.

  • Step 2

    Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring gently, until toasted and fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Pour 1 cup of the hot broth mixture into the rice and cook, stirring constantly, until liquid is almost absorbed. Adjust heat if necessary to maintain a simmer. Repeat, using 1/2 cup liquid at a time, until rice is just beginning to become tender, about 25 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Stir in diced carrots. Continue adding broth and stirring rice mixture until carrots are just tender, about 20 minutes more. Mix in zucchini; if broth mixture gets low, add hot water as needed. Cook and stir, adding broth, until rice is tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Mix in drained asparagus and peas and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes, Add Parmesan and butter, stirring until butter melts. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour in an additional 1/2 cup hot broth to the finished risotto for a softer consistency, if desired.
