PostHeaderIcon Side Dish Sunday: Parmesan & Sun-dried Tomato Risotto

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice (not instant)
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth, heated
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • fresh parsley as garnish

Heat the olive oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and rice and cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Add 1 cup broth and cook and stir until it's absorbed. Add the remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until it's absorbed before adding more. Stir in the peas and parmesan with the last broth addition.

Remove the saucepan from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley & serve. Serves 4.
