Risotto may be just another name for rice, but Mushroom and Zucchini Risotto is no plain old rice dish. This Italian-style side dish is chock-full of tasty garden tidbits!

What You'll Need

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups long- or whole-grain rice
  • 1 medium-sized zucchini, coarsely shredded
  • 1 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

What to Do

  1. Coat a large saucepan with cooking spray. Heat saucepan over medium-high heat and saute onions, mushrooms, and garlic for 5 to 7 minutes, or until onions are tender. Add rice and zucchini, and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until rice begins to brown.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth, water, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add to rice mixture, cover, and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Add Parmesan cheese and stir 1 to 2 minutes, until creamy and well combined, and all the liquid is absorbed. Serve immediately.
