  1. Combine chicken broth, chives, roasted garlic, and basil in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer.
  2. Heat vegetable oil and butter in a separate pot over medium heat; cook and stir shallot and garlic in the hot oil-butter mixture until shallot is softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice to shallot mixture; increase heat to medium-high. Cook and stir until rice is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add wine, reduce heat to low, and simmer until wine is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir simmering broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, into rice mixture and continue to simmer until rice absorbs liquid; repeat, adding 1/2 cup of broth at a time, until all the broth is absorbed and rice is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir half-and-half into risotto; fold in Gorgonzola cheese until melted.

I am not much of a cook, but decided to try this. It came out great! This is a keeper in my repertoire of recipes! Thanks for sharing.

Followed the recipe exactly. Very good. Would make again.

This would be five stars if the liquid amount was correct. I needed much more liquid to get the rice softened, and I've made risotto numerous times so my temps were correct. I just added more ...
