How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add rice and green onions. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until onion is softened. Add vegetable broth and basil. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook 15 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir in green beans. Cover; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed.

  3. STEP 3

    Stir in tomatoes and remaining butter; continue cooking 1 minute or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Tip #1

Arborio rice is used because of its higher starch level that gives this recipe its creamy texture.
