Champagne Feta Risotto

Here is an oldie, but goodie.  I was going to just update with a new, better picture but I ended up deleting the post in the process somehow.  GAH!  Anyway, it is delicious and I hope you try it!  It is a family favorite!



Champagne Feta Risotto

1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 (16-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup Arborio rice or other short-grain rice
1/2 cup Champagne or white wine
2/3 cup (about 2 1/2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese


Bring the first 3 ingredients to a simmer in a medium saucepan (do not boil). Keep warm over low heat.

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 3 minutes. Add rice; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in Champagne; cook 1 minute or until the liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1 cup broth mixture; cook for 5 minutes or until liquid is nearly absorbed, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until each portion of broth is absorbed before adding the next (about 25 minutes total). Stir in feta. Sprinkle each serving with Parmesan cheese.
