½ cup (125mL) onion, minced
1½ cup (375mL) Arborio rice
1 cup (250mL) prepared Bigelow Tea (from above)

½ cup (125mL) mascarpone cheese
Freshly ground pepper and salt to taste
Tarragon sprigs for garnish

Yield: Serves 6 - Prep Time: 10 minutes - Cook Time: 25-30 minutes.


Make tea by steeping 12 Bigelow® Pomegranate Pizzazz Herb Tea Bags in 1½ cup (375mL) boiling water for 10 minutes. Set aside.

Heat olive oil (on medium heat) in large heavy bottom pan, add butter and melt. Add onion and saute. Add Arborio rice and stir about 1 minute. Add Bigelow® Pomegranate Tea and stir until absorbed. Add chicken stock ¾ cup (180mL) at a time, stirring until liquid is absorbed. Continue with remaining stock, stirring between each addition. If risotto begins to stick, lower heat slightly. Continue until all the stock has been used and the rice is cooked and creamy. Add the tarragon and the mascarpone and stir until the cheese has melted. Season to taste. Serve in large soup bowls garnished with tarragon sprigs as an appetizer or serve as a side dish with entree.
