whatchugotinthatfridge? risotto

While it’s come to my attention that i’m awful at writing recipes since i’m awful at following them, i’m still making a half-assed effort to include them on this thing. they would be so much better with pictures, i know. happy friday!

Lazy Steph’s Risotto

2 cups cooked brown rice

1/3 cup vegetable soup, diluted with 3 cups water

1 cup white wine (red works too, if you’re staying true to the name of the dish, you’ll have to go with whatever you have)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/3 cup pesto

1 roasted eggplant, or 1 cup roasted, steamed, sauteed vegetable/s

1/2 cup frozen peas

1. combine rice, soup, water, and olive oil. simmer until liquid is mostly absorbed. add 1 cup water, 2 tsp salt, and let reduce.

2. rice should thicken. add wine, stirring often, and let simmer– about 20 minutes adding water when it gets too low. add pesto, stir, add 1 cup water and simmer

3. stir in vegetables. depending on consistency add more water. but, if you like the texture here, add a handful of parmesan or goats cheese if you please. I didn’t; it was already in the pesto. stir quickly, just until cheese melts.
