Mole Risotto
Mole Risotto

A rich, creamy, robust version of risotto -- both sweet from the cocoa and honey and spicy from the red chilies.

1/2 cup diced onions
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup Arborio rice
3 cups water or 3 cups vegetable broth powder
1 package Simply Organic Mole Sauce Mix
1/4 cup honey or agave syrup
In a large skillet, cook onions in olive oil until caramelized (soft and lightly brown). Add rice and brown 2 to 3 minutes.

Add water (1 cup at a time), stirring in Mole Mix with first cup. (Keep heat so dish is at a low simmer.) Finish adding water and simmer until rice is al dente.

Remove from heat and stir in honey. Serve immediately.
