Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    ¾ cup water
    ½ cup sugar
    ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
    1 star anise
    1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into small dice
    4 cups vegetable stock, hot
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    1 cup Arborio rice
    ½ cup Riesling
    1 tbsp chives, finely chopped
    2 tbsp grated Romano cheese (optional)
    2 tbsp sun-dried cranberries

Directions

Place first four ingredients in pot and bring to a boil; making sure sugar is fully dissolved. Strain and let cool. Add mango and refrigerate for 3 hours.
Heat non-stick spray in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat.
Add shallot and garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes until softened.
Add rice and cook, stirring, 2 minutes.
Add white wine, stir, and continue to cook until it has mostly evaporated.
Add about ½ cup stock; reduce heat, and cook, stirring until almost all of it has been absorbed.
Continue cooking, stirring, and adding stock (½ cup at a time), when previous addition has been absorbed, until rice is al dente and the risotto is creamy (usually 15 – 20 minutes).
Once done, remove from heat, drain mango from syrup, and stir into the risotto, along with chives, Romano cheese (if using), and sun-dried cranberries.
Season risotto with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
