Dish of the Week: Parsnip and Rosemary Risotto

By November 16, 2011Uncategorized

8 cups vegetable broth

5 tablespoons butter, divided

1 1/2 cups chopped onion

1 pound parsnips, peeled, trimmed, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

5 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary, divided

1 1/2 cups (10 ounces) arborio rice

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Aged balsamic vinegar (for drizzling)

Bring broth to boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and keep warm. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Stir in parsnips and 3 teaspoons chopped rosemary. Cook until parsnips begin to brown, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Add rice and stir 2 minutes. Add enough warm broth to cover; simmer until almost all broth is absorbed, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Add more broth, 1 cup at a time, and cook until rice and parsnips are tender, allowing each broth addition to be absorbed before adding next and stirring frequently, about 20 minutes total. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1 tablespoon butter, remaining 2 teaspoons rosemary, and cheese. Season risotto to taste with salt and pepper. Divide risotto among 6 shallow bowls. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve.  From Bon Appetit, March 2006.
