Roasted Tomato Risotto

Oct 21, 2013 02:17PM ● By Cate Reynolds
Risotto is a great comfort food. It is filling and the creamy rice really sticks to your ribs. This risotto has some garlicky roasted tomatoes thrown in the mix for good measure.


2 tsp. butter
½ onion, diced
1 cup arborio rice
¼ cup red wine
2 cups chicken stock
½ pint tomatoes, roasted with garlic and olive oil


Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until it softens. Add in arborio rice and toast for approximately 1 minute. Add in red wine. Stir and let the rice absorb the wine. Once the wine has been absorbed, add in ¼ cup chicken stock. Stir and let the rice absorb that as well. This will be a slow process. Repeat the process until you have no more chicken stock. Add in the tomatoes and stir gently to combine.
