Creamy Parmesan and Pea Risotto

8

Smooth and Creamy Risotto that can be made in less then 30 minutes. The Parmesan and Peas give it a fantastic flavor! Even my anti-pea kid gobbled this up!

1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp butter
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice, any rice with a high starch content will work well, Sushi rice is supposed to work great. Long grain rice will technically work, but doesn't have as much starch so it may not get quite as creamy of a texture.
5 cups chicken broth
1/4 tsp turmeric, optional (I added it to make the rice a little darker yellow doesn't really effect the flavor)
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
In a large sauce pan, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil and butter for 3-5 minutes or until onions are very tender. Add rice and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring so that rice will not stick to...
