Zucchini Risotto step by step

  1. Slice zucchini on the bias to 1/4" thick slices. Heat chicken broth in a small sauce pan to almost boiling. Reduce heat, keep warm over low heat..
  2. In a separate, medium sized sauce pan heat oil and butter over medium high heat. As soon as butter melts add zucchini..
  3. Sautée until zucchini just begins to soften. For crisper zucchini remove from pan with slotted spoon to leave oil/butter behind and set aside. For ultra-soft zucchini that will blend into your risotto leave in pan to cook entire time..
  4. Add rice to pan. Cook to toast lightly, stirring constantly. About 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low. Add one cup hot broth. Stir constantly until broth is mostly abdorbed..
  5. Add the remaining broth one cup at a time allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. When final cup of broth is about 3/4 absorbed reduce heat to low and stir in parmesan..
  6. If you removed zucchini from the pan: For medium-soft zucchini return to pan half way through cooking risotto. For firmest texture add with parmesan..
  7. Taste before serving. Add salt and pepper if desired (I rarely add any cause the parmesan is usually salty enough). Enjoy!.
