Buttered risotto with espresso coffee

Katherine Lim RED

Ingredients

Portions for 4 people

300 g rice
1 small cup of espresso
1 scallion or onion
Parmesan  or pecorino cheese
Vegetable stock
Extra virgin olive oil
Butter

Prepare the vegetable broth with vegetables selected to taste and then prepare a small cup of fine quality coffee. In a frying pan, brown the finely chopped scallion or onion in a few teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil and toast the rice for a few minutes. At this point add half the coffee and let it evaporate. Then slowly stir the warm broth into the rice; once it’s half cooked add the remaining coffee. Bring back to a simmer and continue adding broth – salting to taste as necessary – and finish cooking by melting in the butter and parmesan or pecorino as you like.
