My mom always made this hearty dish to use up late summer garden vegetables. Often, I’ll add sautéed mushrooms and serve it as an entrée with crusty bread and a salad.—Shirley Hodge, Bangor, Pennsylvania

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat broth and keep warm. In a large skillet, saute onion in oil and butter until tender. Add rice; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in 1 cup warm broth. Cook and stir until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  2. Add remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly. Allow the liquid to be absorbed between additions. Cook until risotto is creamy and rice is almost tender (total cooking time will be about 20 minutes).
  3. Add the tomatoes, corn, feta cheese, herbs, salt and pepper; heat through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately. Yield: 12 servings.
