  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Drain artichokes, rinse, and pat dry. Coarsely chop.

    Coarsely chop spinach.

    Zest lemon, halve, and juice.

  2. 2

    Toast Panko and Cook Artichokes

    Place another medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add panko to hot pot and stir constantly until toasted, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove panko to a plate. Wipe pot clean and return to medium heat.

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil and artichokes to hot pot. Stir occasionally until softened, 2-3 minutes.

    Transfer artichokes to another plate. Wipe pot clean and reserve.

  3. 3

    Start the Risotto

    Return pot used to cook artichokes to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add rice to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes.

    Add 1 cup boiling water from other medium pot, mirepoix base, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to pot with rice. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed.

    Add 1/2 cup boiling water and stir often again until nearly all water is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Risotto

    Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more “bite” or crunch, it's done. There may be water left.

    Add cream cheese, garlic salt, spinach, and artichokes to pot. Stir until spinach is wilted, 1-2 minutes.

    Stir in 1 tsp. lemon zest and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice. Remove from burner.
