  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 2 shallots diced (or 1 medium onion)
  • 2 tablespoon basil finely chopped
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a saucepan, put the olive oil and cook in medium high heat.
  • Add the shallots (or onions) and sauté for a few minutes or until it becomes soft. Add the Arborio rice and sauté it for a minute or two, making sure to mix the rice well with the olive oil.
  • Next, add the white wine and mix well with the rice. Wait until most of the wine has evaporated and then start gradually adding the chicken stock, half a cup at a time. Make sure to add the next half cup when the previous one has all but evaporated.
  • Once the rice is soft and cooked, add the goat cheese and lemon juice. Make sure to combine all the ingredients well.
  • Remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste. Lastly, garnish each serving with some chopped basil.
  • Serve immediately.
