Crispy Brussels Sprout and Creamy Parmesan Risotto

By Maebells


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups Brussels Sprouts, halved
  • salt and pepper to taste


For the Risotto

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or butter)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup Village Harvest Arborio rice
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 4-5 cups chicken stock
  • ½ cup Parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a large deep skillet to medium heat.
  2. Add one tablespoon of olive oil and the Brussels Sprouts, halved side down.
  3. Allow the sprouts to brown before turning, cook for 2-3 minutes until browned and tender.
  4. Remove from skillet and season with salt and pepper, set aside.
  5. Pour the chicken stock into a sauce pan and heat until just barely simmering. You want the stock to be nice and hot.
  6. Heat the large skillet and add the olive oil, garlic and onion and sauté for about one minute. Add the rice and allow it to lightly brown.
  7. Add the wine and stir until the wine is nearly absorbed.
  8. Pour the hot broth in one cup at a time and stir continuously, allow the broth to become completely absorbed before you add more liquid.
  9. When you have used all of the broth and the rice is tender add the Parmesan and salt and pepper. Add the Brussels Sprouts back into the rice and garnish with additional Parmesan if desired.
