Ingredients

  • 250 grams risotto rice
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 tomatoes
  • Soft goat cheese
  • 3 shallots
  • Fresh basil
  • 1 liter vegetable stock
  • Glass of white wine or two

Instructions

  • In a frying pan, simmer the shallots. Are they glossy? Add the risotto rice and add some wine.
  • It’s time to add the first batch of vegetable stock. Do this with a little bit of love, don’t put the fire on too high and keep on stirring.
  • Cut the tomatoes and if you’ve used the first half of the stock, add the first half of the tomatoes with the risotto.
  • Stir in the tomato paste.
  • Continue adding the stock, it might take about 20 minutes before the rice is done.
  • When it’s done, add the other half of the tomatoes together with some salt and pepper. Stir this for about two minutes.
  • If you want the risotto to be a bit more creamy, add some mascarpone or creme fraiche. You can also already stir in some goat cheese and let it melt.
  • Everything done? Serve the food on a deep plate and crumble some goat cheese and basil on top of your risotto.
