Indulge in the creamy goodness of this zucchini risotto that is bursting with flavors of fresh zucchini, savory Parmesan cheese, and fragrant basil. This comforting dish is perfect for a cozy night in and is sure to impress your family and friends.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 zucchinis, diced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until softened.
  2. Add the Arborio rice to the skillet and stir to coat the rice in the oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the rice is translucent.
  3. Pour in the white wine and cook until it has been absorbed by the rice.
  4. Begin adding the vegetable broth, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more.
  5. After about 18-20 minutes, the rice should be creamy and al dente. Stir in the diced zucchinis and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve the zucchini risotto hot, garnished with additional Parmesan cheese and basil leaves if desired.
