From time to time I like to pretend that I am a gourmet chef. I would like to share with you my attempt to replicate Pioneer Woman's Sun-dried Tomato Risotto. Enjoy.
Well I got off to a good start. I didn't quite have enough onion, so I added some shallots that were in danger of rotting before I got to use them. Don't worry, they were still good.
PW used real garlic. I like the stuff from the jar. It's more refined. Now, her sun-dried tomatoes looked red and happy...mine, not so much. They smelled funny too. But I pressed on.
Ok, butter and olive oil worked out. Notice the fun purple in my onion mixture. I like to keep things colorful.
Then I added the tomaters.
Oooh, I was very happy it looked similar. I then spent the next 40 minutes adding chicken broth one cup at a time.
Until it looked like this! Not quite as fluffy, but I made it work.
Next for the Parmesan. I used the powdery stuff because I'm classy.
I couldn't believe it! Pioneer Woman used basil from a jar. That's what I had too.
Oh yea, look at that. Delicious!
It actually turned out pretty tasty. Thanks P-Dub!
