Number of Servings: 4


    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 onion, diced
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 cup Arborio rice
    1 stalk celery, diced
    1/3 cup dry white wine
    4 cups boiling chicken stock
    2 cup broccoli florets
    1 cup sugar snap peas, halved
    1.25 cup fresh green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
    1/3 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)


Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion begins to turn golden brown at the edges, about 2 minutes. Pour in the rice, and stir until the rice is coated in oil and has started to toast, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the celery and white wine.

Cook and stir until the wine has mostly evaporated, then stir in one third of the boiling chicken stock; continue stirring until incorporated. Repeat this process twice more, stirring constantly. Stirring in the broth should take 15 to 20 minutes in all. Add the broccoli, peas, and green beans during the last 7 minutes of cooking, and cook until tender. Stir in the feta cheese and parsley before serving.
