Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
1 1/2 cups arborio rice or carnaroli
3-4 cups beef or vegetable stock
1 medium onion, chopped
200g blue cheese or 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
8 strips of prosciutto, cut into small pieces
1. In a medium saucepan, heat the stock to a simmer.
2. Meanwhile, in a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onions (and prosciutto) until golden, about 5 mins. Add rice and stir for 2 mins.
3. Gradually add a ladleful of simmering stock and stir constantly until it is absorbed before adding more. Continue in this manner, until the rice is tender and has a creamy consistency but still retains a bite. It takes about 25 mins. If stock has run out, add water.
4. Turn off and remove from the heat. Stir in the cheese (and prosciutto) and serve immediately.
