Sweet yellow corn is a tasty compliment to rich and savory risotto. Serve with a fresh green salad.
Ingredients:
3 3/4 cups fat free chicken broth
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup uncooked Arborio or long grain rice
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1/3 cup low fat Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup low fat Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
Directions:
1 Bring 1/3 cups of the broth in a large saucepan to boiling and add garlic. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
2 Stir in rice and corn then cook for 1 minute.
3 Add remaining broth and bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender and creamy, stirring often to absorb liquid.
4 Remove from heat then add Parmesan, Mozzarella and parsley.
5 ENJOY!
