I am going through a risotto phase at the moment.
This is my original lemon risotto recipe.
In a large frying pan, place some olive oil and butter. Then add some finely chopped onion and the zest of two lemons.
Soften the onions.
Bring up the heat.
Add the risotto rice and ensure that the rice is coated in the oil and butter.
Add a splash of white wine.
Now add some chicken stock.
Keep topping up with stock to ensure that the rice doesn’t dry out.
Once the rice is virtually cooked, add the juice of the lemons, a large handful of grated parmesan, some roughly chopped rocket and some freshly ground black pepper.
Serve, garnish with a few slices of lemon.
