Method

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the onion and garlic. Cook for 4-5 mins until softened, then stir in the rice.
  2. Pour in a ladleful of stock and simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed, stirring occasionally. Continue adding the stock in this way, until it has all been used up and the rice is tender. Stir in the peas and tarragon, then heat through for 2 mins. Check seasoning, then stir in the Parmesan and serve straight away.

The first ever risotto I tried ages ago and now one of my stables. Easy to make with very few ingredients that are usually in stock and I love the taste of the tarragon! Total comfort food that I tend to make when I'm cooking for myself and am always looking forward to it.

Needs a LOT more rice but is extremely tasty!

Forgot to add - I think the amount of rice given is on the stingy side, 80g per person is about right.

A simple combination that was very tasty, I added a small glass of white wine to the rice and onions before starting to add the stock. I also added chopped Quorn fillets after the wine had evaporated. Miraculously, this actually worked rather well and I'm impressed by any recipe that can handle the addition of Quorn!
