If you’re new to risotto, keep in mind this dish takes a bit of time and patience...and two hands! Use one had to continuously stir the rice and use the other to slowly add the broth into the pan. For best results, add the stock one ladle at a time and wait for the rice to soak up all the liquid before adding another ladleful. The rice will absorb the liquid and the starches will develop into a creamy, velvety consistency. We promise it’s worth the effort!

TOOLS

  • Zester or microplane
  • Medium saucepan
  • Baking sheet
  • Large skillet or pot

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Get started
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add 4 cups water and the concentrated vegetable broth to a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring vegetable broth to a simmer. Peel and dice the onion. Peel and mince the garlic.
2
Roast the sprouts
Trim and halve the Brussels sprouts. Transfer to a baking sheet and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until tender and browned in places, about 10 to 12 minutes.
3
Start the risotto
Place a large skillet over medium heat with 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the diced onion and minced garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the arborio rice, white lentils, and a pinch of salt to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice mixture is shiny, 2 to 3 minutes.
4
Add the broth
Add ½ cup vegetable broth from your saucepan to the skillet with the rice. Stir rice continuously and let the liquid bubble away until it’s almost completely absorbed. Add another ½ cup of broth and again wait for the liquid to be soaked up by the rice. Continue this process, adding ½ cup of broth at a time, until your rice is tender, about 30 to 35 minutes.
5
Finish the risotto
Chop the hazelnuts. Zest and halve the lemon. Once the rice is tender and creamy, stir in the butter and white miso paste. Remove risotto from heat and squeeze the lemon juice into the risotto. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
6
Serve
Toss the roasted Brussels sprouts with the lemon zest on the baking sheet. Divide the white lentil risotto between shallow bowls and top with the roasted Brussels sprouts, chopped hazelnuts, and dried cherries. Bon appétit!
