Radicchio Risotto

Basic ingredients:
Serves 4

- About 6 1/2 cups of Vegetable Stock
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 7 ounces radicchio, cut into strips - 2 cups risotto rice
- 5 tablespoons white wine
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- salt


  • Bring the stock to a boil. Meanwhile, melt half the butter in another pan, add the onion and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the radicchio, then stir in the rice and cook, stirring, until the grains are coated in butter.
  • Pour in the wine and cook until it has evaporated. Add a ladleful of the hot stock and cook, stirring, until it has absorbed.
  • Continue adding the stock, a ladleful at a time, and stirring until each addition has been absorbed. This will take 18-20 minutes.
  • When the rice is tender, season with salt to taste, stir in the remaining butter and the Parmesan and serve.
