|Olive oil||1 Tablespoon|
|Onion||1 Large, chopped|
|Arborio rice||1 Cup (16 tbs) (White)|
|Hot stock||5 Cup (80 tbs)|
|Parmesan cheese||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), grated|
Heat olive oil in a heavy nonstick 2-quart pot.
Saute onion in oil until translucent.
Add rice and stir rice until grains are coated with oil.
Add 1 cup hot stock or water, stirring until liquid is absorbed.
Continue cooking for about 20 minutes, adding the remaining liquid 1 cup at a time.
This rice creates its own creamy sauce; add additional liquid if creamier texture is desired.
Remove from heat, stir in cheese and serve immediately.
For variety, add fresh herbs and chopped vegetables during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
