This Caramelized Onion Risotto is my go-to for night’s when Spencer’s either gone or not eating with us. It’s so creamy and the onions get so sweet. I’m definitely not an onion fan but I love them in this.
My number 1 risotto tip: don’t be scared of the risotto. I know the Food Network hosts make it sound like some time consuming, tricky thing but it’s not. I made this recipe for the first time while I was also pan-frying some chicken, prepping asparagus, AND talking on the phone with my mom. So it’s really not all that difficult. Just don’t let the liquid get too low and stir it every couple minutes.
Thyme is awesome in this but I was all out, so if you want to use it I would stir it in when the rice is close to being cooked.
