Recipe: Shrimp Risotto

As we can all tell, I'm all over cooking with arborio rice.  It's so much fun and takes forever to get through a box!  NOTE:  Do not be impatient with this rice.  This recipe was really good - and quick - but I cooked it a bit too quickly.  Being hungry while waiting for arborio rice isn't always the best idea...

2 cups of vegetable broth
3/4 cup of arborio rice
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tbsp of margarine
1/2 tbsp of EVOO
1/2 cup of broccoli
1/4 cup of frozen peas
salt, pepper
1/2 tsp of dried thyme

1.  In a pan, add margarine, oil and garlic.
2.  Add rice, salt, pepper, and thyme.  Stir around to coat rice in spices.
3.  Add 1/2 cup of broth and simmer.
4.  Add raw, chopped (small) shrimp, broccoli and peas.  Stir and add another 1/2 cup of broth.
5.  After a few minutes, add the rest of the liquid and let simmer until liquid is absorbed, stirring constantly. 

Will definitely try it again.  I'm seeing a very common theme in all of our meals lately though - not that I'm complaining - but rice, broth, garlic, some type of veg, some type of meat,  DONE. :) Pin It
