Do you remember the vegetables boiled water? Now it's time to cook the rice.

When water is almost absorbed repeat steps 11 and 12. Let's the rice cook in this way for 15-18 minutes

The rice must be "al dente" doesn't have to be overcooked. Add salt if needed.


At the very end of the formula add the slice of butter


If you like add Parmesan cheese. And...

Serve Risotto. Gently add spice as black pepper and thyme

Final thoughts

This is the original recipe to make the Italian risotto. If you follow exactly this method you'll impress your sweetheart. I used all bio ingredients, avoid powders or industrial food. If you can't buy fresh products try to find the best you can in your neighbor. Exception for the rice that must be the type I described on the previous pages. You can find it on the internet. Respect your food, ingredients and yourself. Eat less but better.
