Risotto is a Thermomix classic! It’s one of the first dishes many people see when they encounter Thermomix and it’s a reliable stand-by for easy dinners. When I first got my Thermomix (back in the misty days of 2008) I made a lot of risottos, so many that I got a little jaded. But it’s time to reignite the risotto spark. With a few tweaks to the method and a little makeover of the accompaniments, risotto turns from stand-by to star.
Why take it low and slow? Cooking the short-grained arborio rice a little longer and a little lower allows the plump grains to release more starch, making for an extra creamy risotto. It’s like you’re giving the rice a massage and it’s relaxing with joy to make your dinner succulent, juicy and flowing. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
You’ll hear me mention ‘hot wet rice’ in this video. If you haven’t watched the Katering Show’s YouTube series and particularly their Thermomix episode, please let it it into your life! It always makes me giggle.
