Make this homemade risotto from scratch with sage, Italian sausage, white wine, and sweet onions. With the help of our arborio rice grain and topped with parmesan and fresh parsley–it’s hard to resist.
In a small saucepan, bring broth to boil; reduce heat to low to maintain heat.
Heat oil in a high-sided skillet set over medium heat; cook sausage meat for about 5 minutes or until slightly browned. Add cauliflower, onion, celery, garlic, and sage; cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are slightly softened.
Add rice, salt, pepper and chili flakes; cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes or until rice is well coated. Add wine; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Add broth, 1 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until all broth is absorbed and rice is creamy and tender, about 20 minutes (if risotto is dry, add more broth or water).
Stir in half of the Parmesan, and parsley. Serve with remaining Parmesan.
Adding the broth gradually and stirring often ensures that this hearty sausage and veggie risotto is rich and creamy taste without adding any butter or cream.
