Carrot Risotto

ImageI was craving risotto and normally risotto in my household comes in the form of a box. So today, I googled “healthy kids risotto” and found this gem of a recipe. It was so quick to make and really delicious! Plus like a huge Vitamin A booster!

What you’ll need:

1 cup of rice
1/2 diced onions
2 chopped carrots
1 cup of carrot juice
2 cups of chicken stock
1 cup of water
1 tbp olive oil

ImageFirst, have all your ingredients ready to go. Juice enough carrots to make 1 cup of carrot juice. I used about 5. Then peel and chop two carrots. Once that is finish, heat a medium size sauce pan and add the olive oil and heat it for a bit. Put in your onions and chopped carrots and sauteed until the carrots are kinda soft. It takes about 5-6 mins. Then put the rice in and stir the rice around with the carrots for a couple of mins before adding in 1/2 a cup of chicken stock. The rice should quickly absorb the stock. Then mix the other 1 1/2 cup of chicken stock with the carrot juice and the 1 cup of water into one– and slowly pour into the saucepan. LITTLE BY LITTLE.

ImageYou continue pouring the mixture into the rice and stir every so often. It takes about 20 mins to cook! I like the smell of parsley so I always chop it and put it on top of my…everything. I know my directions are awful sometimes but that just means that I’m open for questions! Enjoy!
