Method

Beautiful Risotto is a community recipe submitted by ninab and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Saute chicken, bacon, onion & mushrooms, until meat is cooked. A
  • dd rice, stir for 1 minute. Add wine, stir until alcohol smell disappears. Add stock one cup at a time, stirring continuously until stock is absorbed by the rice.
  • Add veggies after three cups have been added, depending on their cooking time. When last cup of stock is absorbed, taste to ensure that your rice is cooked. (risotto with hard rice is horrible!)
  • If rice is hard, add a little extra boiling water, let absorb, taste again to check if cooked.
  • When rice is cooked completely, stir through cream to taste, serve with cracked pepper, parmesan cheese shavings and of course a glass (or three) of your favourite white wine.
