Artichoke Risotto with Nonno Nanni Fior di Stracchino
140 g rice
1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
aromatic vegetables (carrot, celery, onion)
3 tablespoons Nonno Nanni Fior di Stracchino
30 g parsley
Nonno Nanni Stracchino is a fresh, soft cheese with a unique flavour.
Clean the artichokes well and cut into wedges. In the meantime, fry the garlic in a pan with two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil; add the artichokes and cook until tender, but not too much as they will continue to cook in the risotto.
Place the onion, carrot and celery in a saucepan with water and simmer to prepare a nice vegetable broth to be used for the risotto.
Drizzle some oil in another frying pan and add the rice, let it toast for 5 minutes. At this point I usually pour in a little white wine when I make risotto, but not with artichokes, so I use a ladle of broth, and then slowly add more broth and a vegetable bouillon cube. After 5 minutes, I add the previously sautéed artichokes and continue cooking the rice. When the rice is cooked, I remove it from the heat and add the Nonno Nanni Favola di Latte (or another soft Nonno Nanni Stracchino).
I let the risotto rest for a few minutes, then serve it on a nice plate with plenty of parsley.
