This was AMAZING! I used brown rice, which made the process longer and needed more chicken broth. I also added mushrooms. This was one of the best rice recipes that I have ever tasted. I fought my husband for the leftovers.
Sweet Onion Risotto
Arborio rice is located with other rice products in the grocery store. Its short, smooth grain and high starch content give risotto a creamy texture.
