Risotto

INGREDIENTS
1 Cup Arborio Rice
1 Litre (4 Cups) Chicken stock – I use instant
100G (2 fl 0z) oil
1 Small Onion Finely Chopped
125ml (1/2 cup) White Wine
1 sprig Rosemary, Finely Chopped
½ tsp Pepper
1 tsp Salt
Pinch Safron – optional, added to the stock

METHOD
1.In a small saucepan heat the chicken sock then turn to low.
2.Use a medium frying pan and heat oil.
3.Add The chopped onion and saute until translucent, Add the rice and saute for a few minutes.
4.Add the wine on high heat and stir.
5.Add salt, pepper and rosemary and stir in.
6.Start adding the stock a ladle at a time stirring until the liquid has evaporated. Add another ladle and stir.
7.From the time stock is added it takes 20 minutes until the Risotto is ready. At this stage all the stock should have been used. Taste and when the rice still has a slight bite it is ready to serve.
8.I make it dairy free. If you want to make it with dairy use half butter and half oil to start with and then add ½ cup parmesan cheese at the end and stir in.
