How To Make The Creamiest Risotto

Serves 4 – 6


2 Tablespoon Butter, divided into 2

1 small Onion, finely diced

1 cup Arborio Rice

¼ cup White Wine

4 cups Broth, Vegetable

1 cup Peas, frozen

1 15 oz jar Roasted Peppers, sliced, or 2 Roasted Peppers

4 oz Mascarpone

½ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

2 Tablespoons Parsley, chopped

Salt, to taste


  1. Bring stock to a simmer in a large saucepan. Reduce once heated and keep to a simmer.
  2. In a large saucepan, add butter and onions; sauté for 2 – 3 minutes.
  3. Add the rice; mix well so the rice is coated throughout and sauté until the rice is slightly translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the wine and stir until it is absorbed, should only take about 1 minute.
  5. Add a ladleful of the simmering stock; stir and wait until it is absorbed before adding another ladleful stirring gently and almost constantly. Tip: From this point, set a timer for 18 minutes.
  6. Continue this process until the rice is creamy, tender to the bite, but slightly firm in the center.
  7. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, most of the liquid should be absorbed. Begin to add the Peas, Roasted Peppers, Mascarpone, Parmesan Cheese, 1 Tablespoon of Butter, and 1 Tablespoon of Parsley. Stir to fully incorporate.
  8. Remove from heat and serve. Bonus tip: To add more flavor, add a lemon wedge and garnish with additional parsley and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
