baking sheet
large, deep skillet
liquid measuring cup
medium skillet
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 olive oil and gochujang sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.

ROAST the veggies for 20-25 minutes. (Check after 20 minutes and remove if the veggies are starting to brown.)

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 2 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 broth is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 30 minutes

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 Pappa Paul’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 QUARTERED brussels sprouts and sauté until golden and crispy, about 5 minutes. Be careful of splattering!

DRAIN excess oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Step 5: Combine the Risotto Ingredients

STIR the remaining butter balls into the hot rice mixture.

ADD the brussels sprouts,  parmesan, lemon juice, tarragon leaves, and gorgonzola, stirring until melted and combined.

TASTE and re-season as needed.

Step 6: Eat It Like You Mean It

SERVE the risotto with roasted veggies on the side.
