Sun-dried Tomato Risotto
Sun-dried Tomato Risotto
(Risotto con Pomodori Secchi)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 ounce sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil, about 10 pieces)
1 cup water
2 and 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Arborio rice (available at specialty foods shops)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
Finely chopped fresh parsley leaves for sprinkling the risotto if desired
 
Directions:
 
In a small saucepan simmer the tomatoes in the water for 1 minute, drain them, reserving the liquid, and chop them.

In a saucepan combine the reserved cooking liquid and the broth, bring the liquid to a simmer, and keep it at a bare simmer.

In a large saucepan cook the onion and the garlic in the olive oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until they are softened, add the rice, stirring until each grain is coated with olive oil, and stir in the tomatoes.

Add 1/2 cup of the simmering liquid and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until the liquid is absorbed.

Continue adding the liquid, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and letting each portion be absorbed before adding the next, until the rice is tender but still 'al dente'. (The rice should take about 17 minutes to become 'al dente'.)

Stir in the Parmigiano cheese and salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle the risotto with the parsley. Serves 4 to 6.
 
That's it!
