To complete this How-To you will need: 3-4 c. chicken broth 2 tbsp. olive oil ? medium onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, diced 1 c. Arborio rice ? c. dry white wine 2 tbsp. butter ? c. Parmesan cheese A medium saucepan A heavy pot A ladle Step 1: Heat the broth Bring the chicken broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Step 2: Saute the onion and garlic Add the onion and garlic to the olive oil in a separate pot, and saute over medium-low heat until it is fragrant and translucent. Tip: Use a roomy, heavy pot that distributes heat evenly, such as a stock pot or Dutch oven. Step 3: Add the rice Add the rice to the onion and garlic. Lightly toast it, stirring constantly over medium heat for about three minutes. Tip: Do not brown the rice. It should become translucent around the edges but remain white in the center. Step 4: Add the wine Add the wine, and stir and cook until nearly all of it is absorbed by the rice. Step 5: Add the broth Add a ladleful of the hot broth to the rice, stir and cook until the broth is absorbed, and then add more stock. Repeat, one ladleful at a time, until the broth is nearly gone or the rice stops absorbing it. Tip: Add more ingredients for flavor: herbs, vegetables, seafood, poultry, or meat. Step 6: Cook until tender Continue stirring and cooking until the rice is tender. Add more stock or water if the risotto begins to dry out. Step 7: Add butter and serve Remove from the heat, and stir in the butter and parmesan cheese for added creaminess. Now dig in! Thanks for watching How To Make Risotto!
