Maria's PKU Risotto

PKU Tomato Risotto w/Mozzarella

(you will have to figure out the phe, but this makes one serving)

Ingredients:1/2 Cup diced tomato (used Hunt's canned)

1 Tbl. chopped Basil

1 Tea Olive Oil

1/4 Tea salt

1/8 Tea crushed garlic

12 oz of either chicken broth or vegetable broth (we used chicken the Washington broth mix)

2 tea Olive Oil

2 Tbl finely chopped onion

1/3 C Dry (one serving) of Cambrookes Rice - cook for 10 mins as on rice instructions, rinse very well and spray with Olive Oil Spray

1/4 C Dry white wine or less

1/4 of Cambrookes Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Black Pepper

Step 1 - combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl and set aside.Start cooking rice.

Step 2 - simmer broth in small pan to keep hot.

Step 3 - saute onions and 2 Tea of olive oil in a sauce pan. Add wine. Then stir in pre-cooked rice stir constantly until liquid is absorbed - can take several minutes. Then add the broth to the rice 1/4 C at a time, stirring constantly until absorbed before adding next 1/4 C. Once all liquid is absorbed then add the bowl of mixture (from step 1). Heat for 2 mins, stirring constantly then add the cheese. Remove from heat and let rest to set-up and serve.Good luck - this recipe does take time, but is very, very tasty.
