Coming up with a new side dish to serve my family is something I struggle with. I generally don’t buy packages of rice or noodle mixes.  I prefer to make my own side dishes that are free of preservatives and artificial ingredients.   I recently tried this Creamy Corn & Garlic Risotto for dinner and was impressed by not only how good it was but how easy it was.  I included Green Giant SteamCrisp canned corn because SteamCrisp corn is 100% natural and steam cooked in the can at the peak of freshness.

When Green Giant sent me some of their SteamCrisp corn and a few recipes, the Creamy Corn Garlic Risotto looked like something I needed to try.

Creamy Corn & Garlic Risotto

Printable Creamy Corn Garlic Risotto recipe

3 cups Progresso reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 cup water
1 cup uncooked Arborio or regular medium-grain white rice
2 cans (11 oz each) Green Giant SteamCrisp Niblets whole kernel corn
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

In 10 inch non-stick skillet, heat 1/3 cup of the broth to boiling. Cook garlic in broth 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining broth, water, rice and corn. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered 15 to 20 minutes stirring occasionally, until rice is tender and creamy; remove from heat. Stir in cheeses and parsley.

There are nine different varieties of SteamCrisp corn including Niblets, Extra Sweet Niblets, Niblets No Salt Added, White Shoepeg Corn, Super Sweet Yellow & White Corn, Mexicorn, Southwestern Style Corn, and Chipotle White Corn. I used the Mexicorn in my Creamy Corn Garlic Risotto. Green Giant has added a Box Top coupon to most of its canned vegetables to help parents and students earn money for their schools.

  2. It could/would be great if not for the thought of using unhealthy, horrible and sodium-filled yucky, disgusting chicken broth! Use Veggie Broth instead and this dish could be a winner! :)
