An Italian one-pot classic, great for feeding a gathering quickly and low in calories too!
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
8 rashers streaky bacon, chopped
250g/9oz chestnut mushrooms, sliced
300g/11oz risotto rice
1 litre/1¾ pints hot chicken stock
grated Parmesan, to serve
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and cook the onion and bacon for 5 mins to soften. add the mushrooms and cook for a further 5 mins until they start to release their juices. stir in the rice and cook until all the juices have been absorbed.
Add the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring well and waiting for most of the stock to be absorbed before adding the next ladleful – it will take about 20 mins for all the stock to be added. once the rice is cooked, season and serve with the grated Parmesan.
