Description

Grilled bell peppers lend smoky sweetness to this onion-stippled vegetarian risotto, for which carnaroli rice benefits from the addition of white wine. Vegetable stock then gets ladled in in stages. As the rice absorbs the liquid and cooks through, creaminess ensues. Butter and Parmesan cheese finish the cooked rice dish for the ultimate in edible luxury, and chopped parsley lends bright freshness.

Ingredients

350 grams carnaroli rice
short-grain rice
1 red onion (small, chopped finely)
2 bell pepper (sweet, 1 yellow and 1 red)
750 grams vegetable broth
3 ounces white wine (at room temperature)
butter
parmesan cheese
basil

Directions

1Grill the peppers, remove their skin and cut them into small pieces.
2Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan, add the onion and the peppers. Saute for a few minutes until the onion has caramelized.
3Add the rice and toast it well stirring constantly.
4Add the white wine and allow it to evaporate.
5Then add 2 ladlefuls of hot broth to cover the rice, stir continuously with a wooden spatula and as soon as the broth has been almost completely absorbed, add 2 more ladlefuls.
6Repeat this procedure until the rice is cooked (approximately 20 minutes).
7Turn off the heat, add two tablespoons of butter and some grated parmesan cheese, stir to incorporate, sprinkle with chopped parsley, and serve.
