I first shared this recipe for Sun Dried Tomato Risotto about 5 years ago, but when it was published in my cookbook, I took it off of the website. Recently, I’ve been making some of my favorite recipes again from the book and this risotto is one of my favorites.

Sun Dried Tomato Risotto

For this recipe you’ll need: Arborio rice (which is an Italian short grain rice), sun dried tomatoes, garlic, chicken broth, Pecorino Romano cheese and butter. Start off by browning the rice in a bit of butter; then gradually add the liquid.

I’ve seen recipes that add all of the liquid needed at the same time, but I find my risotto comes out creamier when I add a little liquid at a time. Just before the last bit of liquid is added, stir in your chopped sun dried tomatoes and cheese until all of the liquid has evaporated; then add the remaining butter and stir until creamy.

This recipe for Sun Dried Tomato Risotto is so easy to make, but you must be a little patient. Good things do come to those that wait after all. I’ve made this risotto mainly as a side dish, but for a complete meal idea you could add cooked chicken, fish or beef. ~Enjoy!

    I have never had risotto and would love to try this recipe. I’m a little scared to try it because I have seen some of the cook shows make it and it just makes me a little nervous. I love the few ingredients in this recipe and just might have to give it a try.

      Debbie don’t be afraid, it’s really easy to do. Just add l cup of liquid until it’s absorbed into the rice; then add 1 cup each time it evaporates. If you need to add more liquid than the recipe calls for because the rice is still a bit hard, you can. I used a dry measuring cup and leveled off the rice, but I’ve known people to use a liquid measuring cup (which gives you more rice) and if you add more liquid and let that evaporate, it comes out fine. The last addition of butter really makes it creamy. I hope you enjoy it!

    This looks really good. I will have to get some Arborio and make this without cheese. I think this will be good.
