Hearts of Palm Risotto Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter with olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Stir in Arborio rice; cook and stir until rice is glossy, about 3 minutes. Pour in white wine and simmer until absorbed.

  3. Add 1/2 cup vegetable broth, stirring constantly until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until rice is tender and mixture is creamy, about 20 minutes.

  4. Stir in chopped hearts of palm, remaining 1 tablespoon butter, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
