    Tips & Tricks

    Add baby spinach leaves to the bottom of the thermal serving bowl before adding in risotto.

    For the Vegetable stock paste, refer to the recipe on Cookidoo.

    For this recipe, if you don't have any butter simply use a total of 50 g extra virgin olive oil. If you don't have any olive oil in the pantry, use a total of 50 g butter.

    Rule of thumb for creating your own risotto recipe: for every 100 g risotto rice you will need 250 g liquids (water and wine) combined with stock paste. The maximum quantity of rice that can be cooked at any one time for this recipe is 500 g. Bear in mind adding other ingredients will add volume to the dish, so adjust the rice quantity accordingly.

    Variation: Chicken and Pea Risotto: omit the mushrooms. When adding stock paste, add 500 g skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into pieces (3 cm) and cook
    10 min/100°C//speed 1.5, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid. Then add 120 g frozen green peas and cook for a further 3 min/100°C//speed 1.5, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid. Transfer into thermal serving bowl or other large bowl. Combine with reserved Parmesan and serve immediately.
