Anti-fasting lunch: Risotto with radicchio!

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 it20151107_130046.thumb.jpg.c485e918d0b698 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 put some butter in the pan to melt, cut two shallots in very little piecess and add to the butter. 20151107_130825.thumb.jpg.84ab9c49ef2ee3

I cut the radicchio leaves and the walnuts in little pieces and add when tthe shallots turn gold.20151107_130830.thumb.jpg.f0f475271e2a14  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. 20151107_131730.thumb.jpg.d91fc03d1cacc8Then added the wine, a half glass of cabernet sauvignon. Then I kept the rice covered with boiling water for 15-16 minutes.20151107_131935.thumb.jpg.0b7e414fa33f41  At the end I tasted, added some salt, nutmeg,  pepper,  Gorgonzola cheese and Parmigiano. Stirred. Ready for the dish. 20151107_133450.thumb.jpg.e271c5c89a96d4 I am the worst food blogger ever :pb_redface: and forgot to take a pic of the dish...off to self flagellate, not, better leaving that to Stevhovah  :my_biggrin: 

Good lunch to everyone!

This looks divine!  Mr.Spoon has started making risotto for me - I grew up in a meat and potatoes culture, and we are now expanding my food horizons exponentially.

Radicchio is familiar to me - but more as a salad (raw) leaf than as a cooked item.

Thanks for sharing.  If I were closer, I'd beg to come visit.  :D

I've only ever had radicchio in salads. What main dishes would you recommend pairing this with? 

 Very interesting! :pb_smile:

RRisotto is usually considered a main dish or a first course after which you can serve a second course of meat or cheese and vegetables.  Radicchio is fantastic to make sauces for pasta, roasted  or grilled and paired with some fatty meat or sausages. This is the season of radicchio so maybe I can show you some other radicchio based dishes in the next weeks if you like.

I don't eat onion and I think a shallot is very similar to onion?   What would be a possible substitute for that?  I was thinking maybe garlic?

 If you llike garlic very much you can sauté it with the butter and then take it away before adding the radicchio. If you want you can simply skip tha onion part.

Can I ask why?  Because if you, like my sister, simply hate the flavour and the consistency of onions don't worry because once cooked in this way (especially if cut really really little) they melt and vanish.

Yep, I just hate the taste/texture of onions.   I can eat stuff with them in it as long as I can't taste the onion flavor.  Like I put a few pearl onions in when I make stew and by the time it's done they are soft and don't really taste oniony anymore.

If that's how it works with this recipe then it's not an issue for me.  Thanks!

      I am really concerned about Allison’s weight. In her newest IG photo, she looks SOOOO thin and I can’t imagine such weight loss is healthy. 
       

      To he clear, I am aware that being very thin does not always equate to being unhealthy. But, when it is the result of severe weight loss in this fundie culture, it worries me.

      In the 90s I cared for identical twin boys in the Nicu whose names were Norman Delix and DeNorman Felix.

      So it’s not really about theology, it’s about brainwashing and giving people the feelings that they want to feel. If you argue theology with a Remnant member, it quickly becomes clear that they “know” (not factually, but in the sense of a very strong, deeply held belief) they are in the correct religion and that they have a personal relationship with God due to all these feelings and subjective experiences. They will always fall back on telling you that you need to visit Nashville and experience it for yourself. Or if you already have visited, they will tell you that you need to go “all in” so that you can experience it for yourself. That’s what this cult is—desperately brainwashing yourself so that you can try to keep feeling certain things you like to feel. 

      When we got into a theological debate where our RF relative literally just repeated the exact same verse like a broken record for hours, she finally broke down crying and said "I don't see how you don't see it... If you would just spend time with us and listen to Gwen's teachings for a while, you'd feel God's difference in your life." That's it... That's the "theology." The tribalism feels good, the step-by-step guide to heaven feels like it makes sense, and the wealth means they feel like they must be doing something right. 

      We tried to tell her that feelings can lie but the Bible never does and she was dumbfounded.

      If Joy wants a wants a big family, she’ll do better to try for a VBAC if she can. Not saying she can’t have multiple csections, but my third one was the longest recovery thus far and I’m about to have another surgery for an umbilical hernia that was the result of them. Doctor says after this surgery that it’s safe to be pregnant again after the repair, but it’s been a harder time over all. I also ended up with a hematoma that found an exit through my incision area and I ended up at wound care once a week and having my husband pack it for me in between until it healed. All that to say if she’s determined to have a lot of babies it’s going to be easier on her body if she is able to vbac.

      I have a child that had accidents for well over a year. And still does sometimes. I’ve changed a huge amount of poopy underwear. It’s not special or fun or exciting. It’s disgusting and awful. I would rather deal with throw up.
