25 g

Preparation

Step 01
boiling water in a pan

Boil a pan of unsalted water. 

Step 02
Risotto in a large saucepan

Place a large saucepan over a medium heat, adding a splash of olive oil. Toast the rice gently for 2–3 minutes, stirring constantly so that the rice does not burn.

 

Step 03
adding hot water to the rice

Lightly season the rice and add hot water, a little at a time, allowing it to reduce and absorb as you stir before adding more in.

Step 04
Stiring risotto

Stir continuously for 15–20 minutes, until the risotto is thick and creamy, and the rice is cooked but still has a little bite in the centre of the grain.

Step 05
adding butter to risotto

When the risotto is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and vigorously stir in the butter and grated Parmesan cheese, a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and a white vinegar.

 

Step 06
risotto in a plate

To serve, place in the centre of a warmed bowl.
