This is a heavenly vegetarian risotto with deliciously different hearts of palm as the star of the show. Palm hearts actually come from the inner core and growing bud of some palm trees, and are available tinned in the UK.
Hearts of palm are available tinned. Green Giant is a popular brand.
Sensational! This recipe rocks! I got some help from a friend that says you can never stop stirring. I don't need to go to health club because my arms are so toned now. Used Artichoke hearts instead of hearts of palm. - 02 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The end product was outstanding despite not having the perfect ingredients or being able to follow the directions exactly. Used long grain white rice(one less cup of water and chicken base), no broth, and put the palm in with the onions(oops!). served with chicken and asparagus stir fry. - 13 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My toddlers loved it! I replaced, of course, the wine with more broth, and the broth was very light to avoid salt. A good way of making them eat hearts of palm, something unusual, and help them open up to a new taste. - 13 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
