8 Minute Risotto

 

Create a creamy full flavored risotto in half the time. An excellent side dish. To make a full meal top with grilled chicken, shrimp, or scallops. For a variation, substitute Turkish Enchantment with Italian Bliss or Magnifique Shallot-Pepper.

 

Ingredients:

2 cups Uncle Ben's Quick Cook Long Grain Rice
2 cups broth (vegetable, chicken or beef)

2 cups water

1 cup grated cheese of choice

2 tsp. Turkish Enchantment, Italian Bliss or Magnifique Shallot-Pepper

1/4 cup cream (optional)

1 1/2 TBSP butter

Salt and pepper (optional)

Egyptian Dream Dukkah (optional)

 

Directions:

 

Melt butter in rice cooker (or pot). Add rice coating grains with melted butter. Add broth and Turkish Enchantment. Cover & cook for a few minutes until broth is almost fully absorbed. Add water. Cover & cook until fully absorbed (about 6 minutes). Add cheese, cream, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Cover and cook for another 2 minutes.

 

Top with Egyptian Dream Dukkah.
