  • Summary

    Made only in Greece, Graviera is a hard sheeps-milk cheese that becomes creamy when cooked. Its subtle sweetness and luxurious texture make this risotto stand out, but you can substitute Parmesan in a pinch.

    Ingredients

    • 5 3/4 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
    • 1 cup Arborio rice
    • 1/2 cup dry white wine
    • 1/2 cup shelled fresh peas (from about 8 ounces peas in pods)
    • 3/4 cup freshly grated Graviera or Parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for garnish
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
    • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
