  • Bring the edamame to a boil in salted water and cook for about 5 minutes. Once the peas are tender, drain and set aside.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil.
  • Put the shallots and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the rice and garlic. Cook for about a couple of minutes.
  • Next, add the wine. Stirring constantly, wait for the liquid to almost completely evaporate.
  • Then, start adding the broth, 1 cup at a time, stirring constantly. Wait for the liquid to reduce between additions.
  • Continue cooking and adding stock until the rice is soft and the mixture is creamy, perhaps about 20 minutes.
  • Add the edamame, season with salt and pepper, and top with Parmesan cheese.
  • Serve immediately.


In a rush and don't have time? Use a rice cooker instead to cook the rice.
