Carolina Gold Rice Pirlau

About 6-7 cups chicken or vegetable stock

Olive oil

1 yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 cloves garlic, peeled and grated

2 cups Carolina Gold rice

2/3 cup dry white wine

1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 1/2– 2 cups vegetables; such as

            Yellow or zucchini squash, julienne

            Cooked green beans

            Grape tomatoes, halved or quartered lengthwise

            Carrots, julienne

            Cooked peas

            Pencil asparagus, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

  1. Place chicken or vegetable stock in a large sauce pan over low heat.
  2. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat.  When the pan is hot, add enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add the onions and garlic to the pan.  Sweat until onions have softened and are translucent, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Add the rice, and stir to coat well with the oil.  Cook until the rice starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. 
  5. Add the white wine and cook, stirring, until wine is almost evaporated, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Begin adding the warm broth one 1 cup at a time, stirring constantly, making sure that all liquid is absorbed before adding additional liquid.  Cook the rice until “al dente”.  The amount of stock used may vary. 
  7. Add the vegetables and 1 more cup of stock.  Stir to combine.  Add parmesan cheese and butter.  Stir to combine.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
