Lemony White Beans:


  1. Place a medium saucepan on a back burner over low heat. Add the chicken broth and heat to warm.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and season with a pinch of salt. Cook until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds to a minute until fragrant. Add the rice and increase the heat to medium. Stir the rice to coat in the oil and toast for 2 to 3 minutes until fragrant. Deglaze with the wine and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until most of the wine has absorbed into the rice, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the shredded Brussels sprouts and a pinch of salt, then stir to combine. Using a ladle, add 1 cup of the warm chicken broth into the rice. Stir frequently until the broth is absorbed and the rice begins to release its starches, 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with 2 to 3 more additions of the remaining broth, stirring the rice frequently, until the rice is tender but slightly toothsome and the risotto is loose and soupy.
  3. Stir in the Lemony White Beans and 1 1/4 cups of the Parmesan. Serve individual portions in shallow bowls, topping with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of the remaining Parmesan.
