Hey lovely people out there! I hope you’re having a great day so far. Today it’s Sunday, which means NEW POST. I actually hadn’t got anything planned, so I felt a little stressed, because I love blogging and I will fight through every tear to get these posts up for you guys. Some of my favourite posts to make (and read) are food orientated ones. So I though, I would make one of those today. For the last two months I would say, I’ve had Risotto at least ones a week. 1. Because it tastes SOO good 2. Because it’s so easy to make, everyone can master this 3. Because you probably already have most of these ingredients in ya’ fridge and cupboards – so basically no excuses to not give this a go.
The reason why I stared loving and making risotto all the time. Is because of my Dad. My parents are divorced, (which in my case means) that I live at my Mums and then visit my Dads quit regularly. Almost every time I’m at his place, I ask for risotto for dinner. I would say it’s up there with my top 5 favourite dishes EVER. I presume every one has that dish that either their parent or grandparent make, and no one can beat them – Right? Well to me, no one beats my Dad’s ristotto.
(serves around 3-4 persons)
YOU WILL NEED
1 n’ 1/5 big onion
2 raw garlics
4 dl of Risotto Rice (1 dl per person)
2 dl of White Wine
1L to 1,5L chicken stock
A block of butter (around 25 grams or so)
LET’S DO THIS
- Chop up your onion and press the garlics.
- Heat up a pot on a medium heat, and add quit a lot of olive oil. Now add in your onion and garlics. Let them fry for around 1-2 minuts or until slight golden.
- Add in your risotto rice and let them fry for about 1 min. If needed add in some more olive oil.
- Now add you white wine, and be prepared of the crazy sound. Let the rice soak up the wine before you add any more liquid to it.
- Keep adding stock to your risotto, and try and taste it regularly. 1 To decided whether they need a little more, or not. 2 To check if the taste is too strong or too weak.
- When you’re out of stock (ahaha, you get it…) Judge if the rice has cooked enough and if it needs more flavour.
- Set a side when you think it’s done, and add in some grated parmesan and a block of butter. Mix it around and you should be good to go.
- Lastly add some pepper, and add salt if needed.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, if you consider making this, please tag me on either Instagram or Twitter, and let me know how you liked it.
