risotto with tomato, corn and basil

risotto with tomato, corn and basil
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 medium tomato - peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 1/3 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste



  1. Combine the water and milk in a medium size pot or saucepan, heat the water and milk to a simmer. Keep the pan over low heat.
  2. Melt the butter in a large casserole or skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and the rice, stir constantly for 1 minute. Add the white wine and stir until completely absorbed.
  3. Begin to add the heated milk-water mixture 1/2 cup at a time, stirring frequently. Wait until each addition is almost completely absorbed before adding the next. When the rice has cooked for 15 minutes and most of the liquid has been incorporated, add the corn kernels and tomatoes along with the end of the milk-water mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, until the rice is tender but still slightly chewy.
  4. The risotto should take 18 to 20 minutes of cooking all together. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, most of the basil, and the salt and pepper. Spoon the risotto immediately onto plates, top with the remaining basil strands, and serve.
