Sometimes just coming up with a recipe for things can seem a little difficult, but there are times when just putting some of your favorite things together can create the most delectable dish you have ever made. I am a starch lover, so when I discovered the unique short grain rice, aborio, that used stock and white wine I was intrigued. I looked at famous chefs make it on television and even saw it in some cookbooks, but I decided one day to put them together and just wing it without a recipe. I knew the basics of cooking starches and the ratio of water to starch, so I tried it…it came out great! Here is the simple recipe I used:
1/2 cup of rice
This takes about 25 minutes to make and is simple with a few basic ingredients. The beauty of this recipe is that you can add whatever other ingredients you want. Vegetables, mushrooms, different cheeses, and even throw in some sweet/savory components like raisins or dates. There are a multitude of ingredients you can add and mix together to make this recipe your own.
