Hello friends and Happy Friday!! Today, I’m sharing this simple yet delicious Meyer Lemon Risotto recipe along with a giveaway sponsored by Le Creuset. So exciting!!
First, let’s chat about this recipe for a bit. To make Meyer Lemon Risotto, you start by sautéing onions in a mix of butter and olive oil. Then, you stir in risotto rice and cook for a few minutes until it absorbs some of the fat. Next, you deglaze the pan with a dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Warm chicken stock is then added ladle by ladle, cooking the rice gradually until it’s al dente. The risotto is finished with butter, Parmesan cheese, Meyer lemon zest, and Meyer lemon juice. Each bite is rich and creamy with a pleasant brightness from the Meyer lemon.
You could certainly enjoy this risotto as is, but I wanted to put some greenery on top to add a little contrast with each bite. Here, swiss chard is quickly cooked in a punchy oil flavored with garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. The silky greens bulk up the dish to complete meal status while providing a little garlicky heat. You guys, this is SO yum. Continue reading for the recipe along with giveaway details!
