Vegetable risotto instructions
- Wash and peel the veggies, but don’t throw away the peels just yet! I always save them to make fresh stock (if there’s no rotting or worms of course). Put them in a small pot, add a pinch of salt and a splash of vegetable oil (to extract the color and flavor better) and cover them with water. Simmer for about 20 min..
- Chop peeled veggies..
- Sauté the shallots on butter until golden. Add garlic, stir until the typical garlicky smell. Add rice, stir until translucent. Take a ladle of stock you just prepared and add it to the rice. The most important thing is to stir as much as possible. When the mixture seems a bit dry, add another ladle of stock..
- After the second addition of stock, add the chopped veggies. Mix thoroughly. Alternate between adding stock and stirring. You’ll use about 1-1.2 L of stock, depending of how well cooked rice you like..
- With the last addition of stock, add 1/2 tbsp butter to make risotto creamier..
- Lastly, add white wine and when it evaporates, add parmesan. Stir again and serve hot. Now pour yourself a glass, you did well..
