Meyer Lemon Risotto

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry white whine
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
grated zest of 2 Meyer lemons (about 4 Tbsp.)
1/2 cup parmesan plus additional to serve
1 small bunch red chard, center rims removed and leaves thinly sliced
handful of toasted pine nuts, to garnish

Preparation

1
Heat olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan.
2
Add onions, shallots, and garlic. Cook until they begin to soften.
3
Add rice. Stir until covered with a nice sheen.
4
Add wine. Simmer 3-4 minutes, until wine is mostly absorbed.
5
Adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer.
6
Add stock 1/2 c. at a time, letting rice absorb the majority of the liquid between each addition and stirring regularly.
7
Once rice is tender (if you run out of stock before this happens, begin adding water 1/2 c. at a time until rice is tender), remove pot from heat.
8
Stir in lemon zest, thyme, parmesan, and chard.
9
Garnish with toasted pine nuts and additional parmesan.
