Grab Your Cookware and Staples
large, deep skillet
liquid measuring cup
salt and pepper
Step 1: Roast the Veggies
PREHEAT the oven to 425 degrees.
ARRANGE the mixed seasonal veggies (except the brussel sprouts) on a baking sheet.
DRIZZLE with extra olive oil and gochujang sauce, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.
ROAST the veggies for 20-25 minutes.
Step 2: Sauté the Onion and Rice
While the veggies roast…
MELT 2 butter balls in a large, deep skillet over medium heat.
ADD the chopped onion and shredded brussels sprouts. Sauté until just soft.
STIR in the arborio rice and cook for 2 minutes.
Step 3: Stir in the Broth
MIX the vegetable broth concentrate with 3 CUPS hot water in a liquid measuring cup.
★ADD the vegetable broth to the risotto ONE HALF CUP AT A TIME until absorbed.
STIR and simmer over medium heat until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes, turn off heat when finished. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
★COOKING TIP FROM CHEF K: Slowly cooking the arborio rice is the key to making 4-star restaurant quality risotto vs. a risotto you might find at a place named Pistol Pete's Pizza Ranch & Burgers. We recommend you take the time to do it right.
Step 4: Sauté the Brussels Sprouts
While the rice is cooking…
WARM sunflower oil in a small skillet over high heat.
ADD the tiny brussels sprouts and sauté until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Be careful of splattering!
DRAIN excess oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Combine the Risotto Ingredients, Serve & Enjoy!
STIR the remaining butter balls into the hot rice mixture.
ADD the brussels sprouts, parmesan, lemon juice, chopped tarragon and gorgonzola crumbles, stirring until melted and combined.
TASTE and re-season as needed.
SERVE the risotto with roasted veggies on the side and enjoy!
