Truffled Herb Risotto
Truffled Herb Risotto

Ingredients

Method

  • 4 tbsp truffle butter
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 4 sage leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs of thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 small sprig of rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 250g risotto rice
  • 100ml white wine
  • 600ml chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp parmesan, grated
  • Melt 2 tbsp of truffle butter (you can make this yourself by mixing unsalted butter with truffle salt) in a heavy pot over a medium heat. Chuck in the shallot and herbs, and cook for about 2-3 minutes to soften. Add the rice, and cook for a few minutes or until the rice turns glossy, then pour in the white wine and bring to a simmer, until the wine has almost all gone.
  • Add a good pinch of salt, and a ladleful of stock. Stir the rice until the water has been absorbed, then repeat with more ladlefuls until almost all the stock has been absorbed, and the rice is tender - this should take about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the rest of the truffled butter and the parmesan, and serve.
