Risotto may seem intimidating to make if you have never tried before, but this recipe is absolutely fool proof!

My Tips for the best Risotto


1. Use hot stock

This slows down the cooking process. Adding warm stock ensures it stays hot and everything cooks evenly.

2. Stir, but not too much

You don't want the rice to stick to the bottom of the pan, but too much stirring can add air into the risotto and make it gloopy.

3. Make sure you use Arborio rice

This may seem obvious, but the deliciously creamy texture of a good risotto depends on using the right kind of rice. Arborio is the most commonly used rice for risotto.

You will need: 

1 onion finely chopped
1/2 litre of hot chicken stock (Can be made up from a cube)
135g of Arborio Rice
100g of mushrooms (I used baby mushrooms)
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
pinch dried thyme
salt and black pepper
Optional: 1 tablespoon fat-free fromage frais
Optional: Crispy bacon to serve

Method: 


Place the stock in a small saucepan with the thyme. Add to a low heat.

Spray a frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook until softened and golden.

Add a little of the stock if needed to prevent from sticking.

Season with a pinch of black pepper.

Add the Arborio rice and mix thoroughly with the onion, garlic and mushrooms.

Add 1 ladle of stock and stir it. Stir it often, but feel free to give your arms (and the rice) a break if you need to.

 As the stock reduces, add another ladle of stock, and repeat the process until all of the stock has been used and the rice is cooked through.

Stir through the fat-free fromage frais to add extra creaminess.
