Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Blitz most of the watercress in a food processor with the basil and 1 tbsp of the olive oil until you have a smooth purée. Set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the remaining oil and the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and cook on a low heat for 15 mins or until softened. Stir through the garlic and cook for 1 min. Add the rice and fry for 2 mins. Pour in the wine, simmer and reduce by half. Add half the stock and bring to a rapid simmer, stirring until the stock is absorbed. Once absorbed, add a ladleful of stock at a time and cook until the rice is al dente, stirring continuously for 20-25 mins, or until you have a loose risotto with a little bite – you may not need all the stock.

  • STEP 3

    Stir the watercress and basil purée through the risotto with the parmesan and lemon zest. Loosen the risotto with a dash more stock or hot water and season to taste.

  • STEP 4

    Top with the crumbled goat’s cheese, toasted hazelnuts, reserved watercess and a drizzle of olive oil.
