Directions

1
Heat oil, onions and saffron. Cook 3 minutes or until onions are soft.
2
Keep broth warm in a separate pot at medium-low heat.

Add rice to the onions and stir for 2 minutes. Add white wine and let evaporate.

Add the broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring frequently. Wait until each addition is almost completely absorbed by the rice. Continue to add until all of the broth has been used. Turn off heat.
3
Add butter and Parmesan cheese. Stir to combine with rice/risotto.

Transfer to large bowl and garnish with parsley.

Serve immediately.

NOTE: Finished risotto is creamy and rice is firm.
