 INGREDIENTS

4 – 5 cups vegetable stock

3 tablespoons olive oil 1 large onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

14oz organic carnarolli rice

½ cup white wine

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

4oz Golden Ears Cheeseworks Brie

¼ cup of arugula puree

¼ cup crushed roasted BC hazelnuts

 

DIRECTIONS

Nettle puree

1 bunch arugula (blanched in boiling water for 1 minute and cooled quickly)

1 clove garlic

1/8 cup olive oil

Puree in blender for 1 minute.

 

For the Risotto

Heat the stock. In a separate pan heat the olive oil, add the onions, and garlic. Sauté very slowly for about 15 minutes without colouring. When the vegetables have softened, add the rice and turn up the heat.

The rice will now begin to lightly fry, so keep stirring it. After a minute it will look slightly translucent. Add the wine and keep stirring.

Once the wine has cooked into the rice, add your first ladle of hot stock and a good pinch of salt. Turn down the heat to a simmer so the rice doesn’t cook too quickly on the outside. Keep adding full ladles of stock, stirring constantly, allowing each ladleful to be absorbed before adding the next. This will take around 15 minutes. Carry on adding stock until the rice is soft but with a slight bite.

Remove from the heat and add half of the brie. Stir well. Place a lid on the pan and allow to sit for 2 minutes.

Garnish with the remaining Brie and roasted hazelnuts.
