I put these ingredients together in hopes of creating a vegetarian friendly meal high in protein and using goat cheese and risotto (two of my favorite foods!). The result: a delicious, satisfying, elegant meal for two! Mmmmm!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 ½ cups frozen shelled edamame

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 cup Arborio rice

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 4 cups hot water

  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried basil

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the edamame, soy sauce, and 3/4 teaspoons of ground ginger. Cook and stir until the edamame is hot and the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the rice, and stir until the rice is coated in oil and has started to toast, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the garlic powder and white wine. Let the wine simmer until it has mostly evaporated, then stir in one-third of the hot water; continue stirring until the rice has absorbed the liquid and turned creamy. Repeat this process twice more, stirring constantly. Stirring in the water should take 15 to 20 minutes in all. When finished, the rice should be tender, yet slightly firm.

  3. Stir in the edamame, goat cheese, Parmesan cheese, basil, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger until the cheeses have melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
