Mellow, melting cubes of smoked mozzarella balance the slightly bitter radicchio perfectly. You can use curly endive in place of the radicchio, if you prefer, or escarole if you want to eliminate the bitterness. Substitute salted mozzarella if smoked is not available.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
5 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock, more if needed
1 cup water, more if needed
2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups arborio rice

1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1 head radicchio (about 1/2 pound), cut
into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound smoked mozzarella cheese, cut
into 1/4-inch dice

DIRECTIONS
In a medium saucepan, bring the broth and water to a simmer. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.


Add the rice to the pot and stir until it begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and salt and cook, stirring frequently, until all the wine has been absorbed.


Add about 1/2 cup of the simmering broth to the rice and cook, stirring frequently, until the broth has been completely absorbed. The rice and broth should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed. Continue cooking the rice, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb the broth before adding the next 1/2 cup. Cook the rice in this way until almost tender, about 20 minutes. Add the radicchio and parsley and cook until the radicchio and the rice are tender, about 5 minutes more. The broth that hasn't been absorbed should be thickened by the starch from the rice. You may not need to use all of the liquid, or you may need more broth or some water.


Stir the pepper and the butter into the risotto. Add the mozzarella and stir until it melts into a web.
