Whether you use fresh or canned artichoke hearts, this risotto dish is warming and filling.



Bring stock to a simmer in a saucepan and keep warm.

Melt 5 tablespoons butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and sauté about 2 minutes, then add artichokes and sauté 3 to 4 minutes (8 to 10 minutes, if fresh). Add garlic and thyme. Turn the heat to medium-high, add rice and stir for 1 minute. Add wine and cook until it evaporates.

Reduce heat to medium and add 1 cup simmering stock, stirring constantly. As soon as the stock has absorbed, add another 1/2 cup stock. Stir constantly until the stock has absorbed. Repeat this process until the rice is creamy and al dente, about 20 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and vigorously stir in remaining 2 tablespoons butter, Parmesan cheese and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Top with additional Parmesan, if desired.
