Think about the most dreamy and creamy Risotto dish packed with bursting flavorful confit tomatoes and garlic. This Tomato & Garlic Confit Risotto is truly magical! 




  • 2 packages Pure Flavor® Organic Juno Bites Red Grape Tomatoes (Approx 48 ounces)
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled (divided)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil, divided
  • 7 - 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or honey 
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 68 cups veggie stock or chicken stock
  • ⅓ cup dry white or red wine
  • ¼ cup vegan parmesan cheese, optional




  • Best served right after cooking! You can eat leftovers, but I recommend serving the freshest risotto to guest for maximum creaminess.
  • If you don't want to include wine omit it. 
  • I recommend the Pure Flavor® Organic Juno Bites Red Grape Tomatoes which I love, but feel free to use any Grape Tomatoes you can source locally. 
  • Use the confit tomato & garlic mixture as a garnish for chicken, salmon, or any other dish. It's phenomena used so many different ways!
