  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot (chopped finely)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed lightly)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


  • First, add olive oil, shallots, garlic clove, salt and pepper on medium heat to a pot. Mix and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Next, add rice and toast for 2 minutes. Make sure the rice just becomes translucent and not brown.
  • Now add 1/2 cup of hot broth and mix until the broth is absorbed. Continue to repeat until the rice looks like porridge. The process should take 18 minutes.
  • Finally, add the butter and Parmesan. Turn off the heat and mix until butter is fully melted. Enjoy!
