What do you do with leftover stew??? Well, I have an amazing way to transform stew leftovers!!! Why not make a risotto?? I needed to pat myself on the back- this is brilliant. The risotto has amazing flavor thanks to the stew…I love coming up with ways to reuse my leftovers and make completely different dishes…

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 cup leftover sauce and vegetables from the stew
  • 2 to 3 cups warm mushroom or chicken stock
  • ¼ cup half and half
  • Salt

Heat a medium sized frying pan with the oil. Add the Arborio rice and sauté over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cup of leftover stew and stir on medium heat for a minute. Add 2 cups of broth, mix well and cover with lid and cook for 10 minutes on a low heat. Take lid off and add more liquid, stir and simmer, covered with a lid for another 5 to 7 minutes. Take the lid off and continue cooking, while stirring till the rice is cooked through. Add the half and half. Check for seasonings and add salt if necessary. Serve warm.
