And because June 12th is Valentine's Day in Brazil, I'm sharing this delicious, easy and sexy Recipe for you to make for your love, even if it's not Valentine's Day it's worth it! :)
Servings: 4 plates
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups Risotto Rice
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 2 Chicken stock tablets dissolved in 1 litre of boiling water
- 3/4 cups Parmesan Cheese Shredded
- Extra Parmesan Cheese chunks to decorate
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- Fresh chopped parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste (opcional)*
*Just be careful with the salt here because the Parmesan and chicken stock tablets have salt!
In a medium sauce pan add olive oil and rice. let it cook for about 3 minutes and then add the white wine.
Let it cook until wine is almost gone and add a ladle of chicken stock (let the chicken stock in a separated sauce pan in a low temperature) and mix it.
Let it cook and when the chicken stock is almost gone, add another ladle and mix it frequently!
The rice has to be "al dente", meaning not too cooked and not too hard. I don't like "al dente" I prefer to continue cooking is for about 3 or 4 minutes more. So check your preference! :)
Now, take out of the heat and add: the butter, parmesan cheese, parsley and if you want salt and pepper.
Add the parmesan chunks and serve immediately !
I hope you enjoy your delicious Risotto with your loved one!!!
Have a wonderful week!!!!
