Ingredients

1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

1 1/2 cups uncooked Arborio rice

3/4 cup sliced green onions

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh garlic

3 (14-ounce) cans vegetable broth

12 ounces (3 cups) fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces

6 medium (1 1/2 cups) Roma tomatoes, chopped

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves  

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Freshly shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired

 

 *Substitute 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter in 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add rice, green onions and garlic. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until onion is softened.

  2. STEP 2

    Continue cooking, adding 1 cup vegetable broth at a time and stirring occasionally, 20 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Stir in green beans; continue cooking and adding broth 5-10 minutes or until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed.

  3. STEP 3

    Stir in tomatoes, basil and pepper; continue cooking 1 minute or until heated through. Top with cheese, if desired.

Tip #1

Arborio rice is used to make risotto, a creamy Italian rice dish. The Italian rice is shorter and fatter than more common long grain rice. It is high in starch which lends to its creaminess.
