  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Chicken Flavour Bouillon

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

  4. Add the rice and stir until completely coated with the oil; cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Stir bouillon powder into hot water until dissolved.
  6. Add 1 cup of chicken broth, stirring constantly until most of the liquid is absorbed by the rice.
  7. Gradually stir in remaining broth 1 cup at a time, cooking and stirring until liquid is absorbed before adding the next cup.
  8. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet.
  9. Add vegetables and sautè for 2 to 3 minutes, or until crisp tender.
  10. Remove from heat and set aside until risotto is nearly finished cooking.
  11. Risotto is ready after the last cup of broth has been stirred in and rice has thickened.
  12. Remove from heat and stir in vegetables and Parmesan cheese.
  13. Season with salt and pepper; top with additional shaved Parmesan, if desired, and serve immediately.
