More Information

With Spice & Easy, cooking is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Just open, spice and serve. Each Meal Starter Spice Mix includes the pre-measured seasonings needed to make a quick, simple and tasty recipe.

DIRECTIONS:
In a wide, heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter over medium heat and add Saffron & Chanterelle Risotto Mix. Stir for 1 min., or until mixture is coated in butter and aromatic. While stirring, gradually pour in 3 cups hot water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer (uncovered) for 15 to 17 min., or until liquid is mostly absorbed, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium and add remaining 1 cup hot water. Stir constantly for 2 to 3 min., or until rice is tender and mixture is creamy. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese. If the risotto is too thick, loosen with a splash of hot water; if it is too thin, stir in more Parmesan. Serve immediately.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:
Top with fresh herbs and Parmesan.

NOTES:

For a vegan version, replace dairy with vegan butter and vegan cheese.

Tip: you can use the leftovers to make addictive Arancini, crispy rice balls that pair perfectly with our Classic Marinara Sauce Spice 'n Easy.

For arancini, form cold risotto into balls, roll in flour, dip in beaten egg, and coat in bread crumbs. Fry in 375 degree oil until golden brown.

YIELDS:
Serves 6.
