SPICY LEMON RISOTTO
7 to 8 cups chicken or vegetable stock, as needed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup minced red onion
1 table spoon of NAFI'S Mango/Tamarind (buy now)
1 pound summer squash (mixed varieties), diced
1 red bell pepper, thinly diced
1 1/2 cups of rice
1 to 2 garlic cloves (to taste), minced Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 teaspoons finely chopped lemon zest
1 to 2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (to taste)
2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup of thinly chopped chives 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Put your stock or broth into a saucepan and add NAFI'S condiment. Bring it to a simmer over low heat .
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a wide, heavy nonstick skillet. Add the red onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender, about five minutes.
Stir in the rice and the garlic, and stir until the grains separate and begin to crackle.
Turn the heat back down to medium, and begin adding the simmering stock (about 1/2 cup) at a time. The stock should just cover the rice and should be bubbling. Cook, stirring often, until the stock is just about absorbed. Add another ladle or two of the stock, and continue to cook, stirring in more stock when the rice is almost dry. You do not have to stir constantly, but stir often.
When the rice is tender all the way through but still chewy, (in about 25 minutes,) it is done. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add another ladle of stock to the rice. Stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, chives and Parmesan. Remove from the heat. The mixture should be slightly creamy (add more stock if it isn’t). Serve.
