Red wine risotto

Servings :
Preparation Time : 30 minutes 
Difficulty : Easy 

Full-bodied red wine perfectly complements the tomato sauce providing a tasty yet unusual dish. This super simple recipe demonstrates that there is more to risotto than mushrooms and white wine – and is ready in no time with ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard.

Red wine risotto

Ingredients

1 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Cherry tomatoes, chopped
Fresh parsley, finely chopped
300g rice (I used basmati, but risotto rice would also work well)
1 can of tinned tomatoes
Stock cube
Boiling water
1 large glass of dry red wine
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

1. Fry the onions, garlic, tomatoes and parsley in a frying pan with some cooking oil.

2. In a separate pot, boil some water and throw in a stock cube.

2. Toss the rice into the frying pan and coat with the onions and garlic. Allow to cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add in a can of tinned tomatoes, stir, and gradually pour in some of the stock.

4. Keep stirring and pouring in more stock until the rice is soft and no longer tastes hard/chewy.

5. Pour in a glass of red wine and allow to simmer for a few minutes until the liquid evaporates, stirring regularly so that the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

7. Serve, garnish with herbs and cheese and then enjoy with a glass – or two – of your favourite red!

Hints

Garnish with mozzerella and parsley that extra kick, or make this recipe your own by adding peas, carrots, courgettes (zucchini), peppers or any other vegetable you like.
