  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 small onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 cup arborio rice (7 ounces)
  5. 1/2 cup dry white wine
  6. 1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
  7. 1 cup shelled peas
  8. 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 2 tablespoons shredded basil
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the Corn Broth to a simmer and keep hot. Heat the olive oil in another medium saucepan. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring constantly, until absorbed, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of the hot Corn Broth and cook, stirring, until absorbed. Continue adding the remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, and cook the rice, stirring constantly, until al dente, about 20 minutes. Add the corn and peas and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in the Parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the risotto into bowls, garnish with the basil and serve.
