Cooking Instructions for Risotto Pre-Mixes
Cooking Time: Approximately 20 Minutes.
- 2 Tablespoon olive oil ( or 30g unsalted butter )
- 1 litre of water
- 250g Pre mix risotto
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil (or 30g butter) to pan, lightly heat and add Pre Mix Risotto.
Gently coat the risotto in the oil/butter, on a low heat.
Once coated, add I cup (250ml) of water, whilst stirring regularly, on a medium heat & simmer until water is absorbed.
Repeat process of adding one cup, at a time, until 1 Litre of water is used – this takes about 20min
Stirring regularly breaks down the starch, which gives the risotto a delicious, creamy texture.
Risotto will now be well cooked & have creamy texture.
Leave to stand for a few minutes before serving
For a more gourmet dish, add cooked prawns or diced chicken, with a topping of parmesan and fresh baby spinach leaves, OR substitute final 250ml of the water with a dry white wine and stir through goats cheese, while standing.
