Carrot Juice Risotto

This takes about one hour to complete, but really you're doing little more than an occasional stir. Homemade carrot juice is exquisite, but buying a quart of fresh ready-made makes this dish supereasy.

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pan on medium heat, toast rice in olive oil, stirring a bit for 8 minutes. Reduce heat a little and add 1/2 cup carrot juice and 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Stir. As liquid is absorbed, add another 1/2 cup of each liquid. Continue process until 5-6 cups total liquid has been absorbed and rice is creamy, 50-60 minutes.
  2. Add chopped scallions and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Just before serving, top each portion with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, if desired.
