This recipe was really good! I was a little skeptical, but it was tasty and refreshing with the Granny Smith Apples I chose to use. I adapted this recipe from one I found online because I thought it would be too sweet if I used all it said to use!
Here it is....
Apple Breakfast Risotto
4 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced
2 Cups Apple Juice
2 Cups Water
2 1/2 cups Arborio Rice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla (I forgot it!!!)
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup butter, sliced
Add all ingredients EXCEPT the rice the night before to the liner and stir. In the morning, add the rice and stir.
Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours. Enjoy!
TIPS: When I made this, I made it with only 1 1/2 cups Arborio Rice and it was way too thin. I ended up adding 2 packets of instant oatmeal to thicken it up quickly so I could eat it before having to head back to work for Open House night. If you prefer to do the same, it was actually pretty good! I forgot to add the vanilla, but I think it would have given it that extra special touch, so don't forget it!
