Directions

  1. Pour the stock or broth into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  2. Keep liquid hot.
  3. In a large, heavy saucepan over low heat, heat oil.
  4. Add the leeks and saute about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the rice and stir until white spots appear in the center of the grains, about 1 minute.
  6. (It is very important to use Arborio rice!) Add the wine and stir until absorbed, about 2 minutes.
  7. Add one ladleful of the hot stock or broth, adjust the heat to maintain a gentle simmer, and cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes.
  8. Continue adding the stock or broth, one ladleful at a time and stirring constantly, until the rice is just tender but slightly firm in the center and the mixture is creamy, 20-25 minutes longer.
  9. Add the cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Stir to mix well.
  11. Serve at once.
  12. Makes 8 cups.
