To continue this fantastic anti-fast/feast I decided to make my favourite risotto. I don't know if radicchio is known and grown somewhere else in the world, btw this is it It's a sort of red salad typical of Veneto. I used more or less the amount you see in the pic.
Ingredients: radicchio, 2shallots, walnuts, butter, homemade bouillon, Carnaroli rice, half a glass of red wine, boiling water, Gorgonzola cheese, Parmigiano.
I cut the radicchio leaves and the walnuts in little pieces and add when tthe shallots turn gold. I cooked it for 5-7 minutes, adding some spoonfuls of boiling water to avoid burning. When water evaporates I added rice and toasted for two minutes. Then added the wine, a half glass of cabernet sauvignon. Then I kept the rice covered with boiling water for 15-16 minutes. At the end I tasted, added some salt, nutmeg, pepper, Gorgonzola cheese and Parmigiano. Stirred. Ready for the dish. I am the worst food blogger ever and forgot to take a pic of the dish...off to self flagellate, not, better leaving that to Stevhovah
Good lunch to everyone!
