  • Over medium low heat, cook oil, butter, shallots and onions for approximately 4 minutes. Add 2/3 cup of warm broth, stirring often until mixture has a soft and creamy texture (approximately 15 minutes). Stir in rice. Continue to cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add wine and  continue to cook until wine has evaporated.
  • Still over low heat, pour in 2/3 cup of hot broth. Stir constantly. When moisture has been absorbed, pour in an additional 2/3 cup of hot broth. Stir constantly. When that moisture has been absorbed, add additional 2/3 cup of hot broth. Stir constantly. Repeat until broth is gone.
  • While rice is cooking, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add frozen peas to water. Blanche peas for 1-2 minutes. Remove from water and drain.
  • Stir peas into risotto. Season to taste. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.
