Crockpot Corn Risotto

Crockpot Corn Risotto

1 1/4 cups arborio rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon onion flakes
4 cloves garlic, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
16 ounces frozen corn
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup 2% low-fat milk
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

1. Put the tablespoon of olive oil into the bottom of the crockpot, and swirl the rice and the onion flakes in it.

2. Chop the garlic and add, along with the salt and cayenne pepper. Add the frozen corn and the broth. Stir well. Drop in a pat of butter.

3. Cover and cook on high for about 2 hours, checking every 45 minutes or so. This is done when the liquid has absorbed and the rice is tender.

4. Unplug, and add the cream and parmesan cheese. Cover for 5 minutes, or until cheese melts completely.

6 Servings.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
