"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Lemon Broccoli Risotto
Lemon Broccoli Risotto
(Risotto al Limone e Broccoli)
 
 
Ingredients:

4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 lb broccoli, cut into flowerets, quartered if large, and stems cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 and 1/2 cups rice (short, medium, or long grain)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
 
Directions:
 
In a large saucepan bring the broth and the water to a boil and in the broth simmer the broccoli flowerets for 3 minutes, or until they are just tender.

Transfer the flowerets with a skimmer to a bowl and reserve them.

To the simmering broth add the broccoli stems, the zest, and the lemon juice and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes.

While the stems are cooking, in a large heavy saucepan cook the onion and the garlic in the olive oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until the onion is softened and stir in the rice, stirring until each grain is coated with the olive oil.

Add 1/2 cup of the simmering broth, stems included, and cook the mixture over moderately high heat, stirring constantly, until the broth is absorbed.

Continue adding the broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and letting each portion be absorbed before adding the next, until the rice is tender but still 'al dente'. (The rice should take about 20 minutes to become al dente.)

Stir in the reserved broccoli flowerets and simmer the risotto, stirring, until the flowerets are heated through.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Parmigiano cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Serves 2.
