I plan to be posting more frequently for the next while, so stay tuned for plenty of tasty gluten-free goodness... starting with this risotto.
This is by far the easiest way to make a good risotto. Ahh, sweet sweet (salty) laziness.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup of arborio rice
440g (15oz) canned diced tomato
1/3 cup cooking wine
3 cups vegetable stock
3-4 handfuls of spinach/silverbeet, chopped
6-12 black kalamata olives, pitted & sliced
4 (or so) medium-large button mushrooms, sliced
1 small carrot, grated
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon dried mixed Italian herbs
salt & pepper to taste
1. Turn the cooker on with lid open, heat up oil, saute onion and garlic for 1-2 minutes.
2. Add rice, stir until coated with oil.
3. Add the vegetable stock, canned tomato, wine, mushroom, dry herbs. Stir until evenly distributed. Close rice cooker
