Karl’s Kitchen – Spinach & Corn Risotto



 ¾ cup Arborio rice

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp butter

4-5 cups chicken stock

½ cup chopped spinach

¼ cup fresh or frozen corn

1 shallot

¼ cup dry white wine

2 tbsp lemon Juice

1 tbsp lemon zest

¼ cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Pour chicken or vegetable broth into a saucepan and place over low heat.
  2. In a medium to large sauté pan add olive oil and butter over medium heat. Stir in shallots and cook for about 1 minute. Add rice and cook for another 2-3 minutes while stirring.
  3. Pour in white wine and continue to stir until wine is fully absorbed. Add ½ cup of broth to the rice and stir until broth is absorbed. While stirring often, continue to add ½ cup of broth at a time until the liquid is absorbed, and the rice is tender. About 20 minutes.
  4. Towards the end of the cook, add chopped spinach, corn, lemon juice and lemon zest.
  5. Stir in parmesan cheese and season with salt & pepper.
  6. Serve with your favorite protein. I personally like pairing with a fresh piece of fish.
