Sunday Dinner: Risotto with Parmesan and Saffron

After a turkey filled week, I thought it would be nice to find a hearty vegetarian entree for tonight's Sunday Dinner installment. A creamy risotto makes for a filling main course, and — bonus! — will pair nicely with warmed slices of leftover turkey. Serve it up with a nice mixed salad and a dry white wine and you've got yourself a meal! To get the recipe,


Risotto alla Milanese (Risotto with Parmesan & Saffron)
From Fine Cooking

1 medium onion, very finely chopped
8 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 lb. (2 cups) arborio, vialone nano, or carnaroli rice, or other medium- or short-grain Italian rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
6 cups hot homemade or low-salt canned chicken broth; more as needed
1/2 tsp. saffron threads
1 cup finely grated Parmesan, preferably parmigiano reggiano
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  1. In a heavy-based saucepan that's large enough to hold the rice with plenty of room left over, cook the onion in 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat until it's translucent and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the rice and cook it over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add the wine, 2 cups of broth, and the saffron. Turn the heat to high until the broth comes to a simmer and then adjust the heat to maintain a steady simmer.
  3. Cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed, stirring every minute or two (there's no need to stir constantly). Add another cup of broth and keep cooking, stirring, and adding broth until the rice is al dente but not raw or grainy in the middle.
  4. When the rice is ready, stir in the cheese. Add a little more broth to give the risotto the consistency you like (from fairly tight to almost soupy). Off the heat, stir in the remaining 6 tablespoons butter. Season with salt and pepper and ladle onto heated plates or bowls.
