Lemon Risotto

Lemon Risotto


  • Heat the chicken stock in a saucepan, over low heat.
  • Grate the zest of 1 lemon, then cut the lemon in half and juice. Set aside until needed.
  • Place a pot over high heat. Add the olive oil and let it get hot.
  • Add the onions, lower heat to medium and sauté for about 5 minutes, until they soften. You don’t want the onion to turn golden, just translucent.
  • Add the rosemary along with a generous pinch of salt.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes, until the rosemary releases its aroma.
  • Turn heat back up to high and add the rice. Stir and sauté until translucent.
  • Add the wine and turn down heat to low.
  • Cook until the wine evaporates and add a ladleful of warm vegetable stock.
  • Stir until the rice absorbs all of the stock and add another ladleful.
  • Repeat the same process (stock, stir, stock), until the rice is completely done and the stock runs out. This should take about 20 minutes.
  • At this point the risotto should be nice and creamy.
  • Remove from heat. Add the butter and parmesan. Lightly stir to incorporate.
  • Add the lemon zest and gradually add the lemon juice, tasting from time to time to make sure it is not to sour for your liking.
  • Add the parsley, salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Stir and serve immediately.
