Risotto is one of the best naturally gluten-free dishes you can make and this is a classic with a twist. Try leaving some for your lunch the next day, you won’t regret it!
340g risotto rice
1 finely chopped medium onion
1 bottle of organic CELIA lager
1.21 hot vegetable or chicken stock
1OOg grated parmesan
300g of sliced mushrooms
Shaved parmesan and sprigs of Thyme for garnish
Saute one finely chopped, medium onion and the mushrooms in 40g of butter until softened. Add 340g of risotto rice and coat until translucent. Add your bottle of CELIA and cook until evaporated. Add 1 litre of hot chicken or vegetable stock and simmer, stirring occasionally.
After about 14 minutes the stock will have been absorbed, the rice will be cooked and creamy, yet retain a desired bite in the centre. For a less ‘al dente’ consistency, add a ladleful of the hot stock and simmer until absorbed. Continue in this way until the rice has reached the desired consistency.
Stir through grated parmesan cheese and sprinkle some shavings ontop. Add a fews prigs of Thyme.
