Description

Arborio absorbs stock without becoming too soft, making it ideal to cook smooth and creamy risottos. This rounded grain rice variety is grown in the Italian Piedmont region, where it has been cultivated since the 15th century. The combination of exceptional climate, soil, landscape and local expertise ensure the quality and uniqueness of this traditional rice variety.

INGREDIENTS: Arborio Rice (Oryza sativa L.)

FREE FROM: Celery, Gluten, Crustaceans, Eggs, Fish, Lupin, Dairy, Molluscs, Mustard, Peanuts, Sesame, Soy, Sulphites, Nuts

NUTRITIONAL CLAIMS: Low-Fat, Sugars-Free, Salt-Free, Gluten-Free

CERTIFICATIONS: Halal, Kosher

PREPARATION: There are four steps to risotto heaven:

  • Soffritto: Gently sauté onions in vegan butter or oil for a couple of minutes.
  • Tostatura: Add risotto rice and stir for a few minutes to coat with the vegan butter or oil.
  • Cottura: Add boiling veggie stock as necessary for 16-18 minutes, until the rice is cooked.
  • Mantecatura: Rest the rice for 1 minute off the heat before adding a knob of cold vegan butter or cheese.

You can create your own risotto by simply adding your own ingredients at the appropriate stage of cooking.

COOKING TIPS:

  • Do not wash rice before cooking it as this removes the valuable starch which makes the risotto creamy.
  • Cook the rice slowly by letting it gradually absorb stock that is added little by little until the rice is cooked.
  • Stir risotto continuously to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Keep the stock on the hob at boiling point, so that the rice does not stop cooking when the stock is added.
  • Risotto is ready when al dente, or when it is tender on the outside but it has a firm bite in the centre.
  • Take the rice off the heat just before you think it is ready because it will continue to cook in its own heat.

COOKING TIME: 16-18 minutes

SERVINGS: About 13 portions (5 full tablespoons / 75g per serving)
