Recipe by Patricia Scarpin
"A friend came to visit me in Brazil, and we both had this dish in a restaurant. It was delicious and I tried to recreate a similar recipe at home. The restaurant version also contained snow peas, but I chose not to use the snow peas and focused on the heart of palm instead."

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.
This is a tasty recipe. I used chicken broth instead of veggie and substituted mushrooms for the hearts of palm. Your instructions do not state when to add the cheese. I assume at the end as with most risottos.
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.
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.
We were looking for a way to jazz up rice as a side-dish and this did the trick! Out of necessity we used regular white rice (worked great), Sake for the white wine (it was all we had), added half of a can mushrooms (they added color and an extra layer of consistency), and omitted the cheese (just didn't have any). Even without the cheese, it was very thick and flavorful. Also followed another user's advice and stirred [almost] constantly. Thanks for the great recipe, this will definitely be a regular.
This was a wonderful recipe! My daughter, who does not care for hearts of palm, loved it as well. The Parmesan gives it a nice cheesieness. I was out of white wine so skipped that, but added a half cup of frozen baby peas. With the peas added it's a 5 star!
I made this for a Christmas holiday dinner and it was fabulous! I scaled it to 6 servings and it worked fine.
Only change I made: I added about a cup of baby portabellos to the onion and sauteed them together.
Will definitely serve this again --- my next dinner party will be a hit with this on the side!
I found this while doing a search for risotto. I spent a month in Brazil several years ago visiting a cousin I had never met. I fell in love with this country and its food and I miss it very much. I am definitely going to have to try this. Obrigato, Patricia (hope I said that right.)
