1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1 cup Arborio or medium grain rice
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth, for vegetarians)
1/4 cup Sun-Maid Golden Raisins
1/4 cup Sun-Maid Tart Cherries or Cape Cod Cranberries
1/2 cup (2 ounces) Smoked Gouda Cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheeese, shredded
Black pepper, to taste
Heat olive oil in a medium-size saucepan. Saute onions 2-3 minutes, until soft. Add rice and stir until completely coated with oil.
Add wine and simmer until liquid is evaporated. Add broth of choice and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 18-20 minutes until nearly all the broth is absorbed.
Remove pan from heat and stir in dried fruit and cheeses. Season with pepper to taste. Let stand 5 minutes lightly covered. Serve hot.
