Balsamic Caramelized Onion Risotto ~ Eat2Gather

Posted on 06 November 2015

There's nothing more comforting than a creamy risotto, add in the magic of balsamic caramelized onions and you have a side dish that is nothing short of spectacular. De Nigris White Wine Balsamic is the secret to making the most amazing caramelized onions. The natural sugars from the vinegar adds a sweetness and zip that is undeniably the one of the most amazing things you will ever taste! De Nigris vinegar in the new spray bottles are the answer to adding the perfect amount of balsamic vinegar evenly over time to the onions as they cook!


This dish pairs spectacularly with all proteins. It also makes the perfect canvas for adding in roasted vegetables for a meatless meal option, my favorite being roasted butternut squash. However, roasted asparagus, beets, and sweet potatoes are all great choices.

Another amazing ingredient to add to the balsamic caramelized onion risotto is Gorgonzola cheese, which pairs beautifully with steak.

The beauty of this dish is that although it takes some time to create, it helps one to slow down, and enjoy the process of cooking for their loved ones. Pour yourself a glass of wine, take a deep breath and enjoy the process! This dish is sure to become a favorite of family and friends. Balsamic Caramelized Onion Risotto is comforting, delicious and pairs well with chicken, pork, beef or fish. It is undeniably the perfect dish to gather your family and friends around the table for.
