Orzo and Broccoli Risotto

Submitted by: JENNIAUN

Introduction

Creamy in Texture and rich in flavour.
Vegetarian but is excellent with some chicken!
Borrowed from Weight Watchers "Dining for Two" cook book. The amount made for 2, is actually plenty for 3 or possibly even 4 people.

Directions

1. Bring the broth and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce the heat and keep at a simmer.

2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrot and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until the carrot is bright orange and garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the orzo and cook, stirring, until it is lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.

3. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add 1/2 cup of the broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until it is absorbed before adding more. Cooked until the pasta just slightly firm, adding the broccoli when you add the last addition of the broth.

4. Stir in the half-and-half; heat 1 minute. Stir in the cheese. Spoon into shallow bowls and serve at once.
