Sweet Potato Risotto

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled, diced small

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 cups vegetable broth

  • 1-1/3 cups Arborio rice

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes

  • Finely chopped fresh parsley or herbs of your choice to garnish


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Place sweet potatoes, onion, thyme, and garlic in a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Remove 3/4 cup diced sweet potatoes and set aside. Pop garlic cloves out of their skins. Place garlic and all but the reserved sweet potato mixture in a blender or food processor and puree.

  4. Meanwhile, heat broth in a saucepan. In a second saucepan over medium heat, add rice and stir for a few minutes until rice is lightly toasted.

  5. Add 1 cup broth and stir rice until liquid is absorbed. Then add broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until liquid is evaporated. Stir in more broth and sweet potato puree into rice and cook, stirring, until liquid is evaporated.

  6. Continue to add broth until rice tender and creamy. Stir in tomatoes.

  7. Ladle risotto into bowls and garnish with reserved sweet potatoes and herbs.
