"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."

Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until it begins to turn golden brown at the edges, about 2 minutes. Pour in the rice, and stir until the rice is coated in oil and has started to toast, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the white wine. Let it cook until it has mostly evaporated, then stir in one-third of the boiling vegetable broth; continue stirring until incorporated. Repeat this process twice more, stirring constantly. Incorporating the broth should take 15 to 20 minutes in all.
  2. When the rice is mostly tender, but still has a very slight crunch, stir in the hearts of palm and Parmesan cheese; season with salt and pepper. Cook for another minute to heat through then stir in parsley and butter, and serve immediately.

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.

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.
