Risotto with green bean and prosciutto ham
Ingredients (make 4 portions)
400 g (14 oz) Arborio rice
80 g (3 oz) fresh ground Parmesan
80 g (3 oz) butter
200 ml (7 fl oz) dry white wine
1 l (35 fl oz) stock (well seasoned)
1 medium onion
1 cup fresh green beans
Handful chopped parsley
Freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp chopped chives
4 slices aromatic ham (i.e. prosciutto)
Bullion bring to boil. Sauté the chopped onion with 2 tbsp butter, add rice. Well combine the rice with butter, so each rice grain is covered with butter. Pour in the wine, boil for 2 min. Gradually add hot bullion, rice should absorb the bullion. Stir all the time.
After 40 min, when rice is almost ready add parsley, pepper and green beans. Turn off the heat, add the Parmesan and the rest of cold butter. Stir (should be creamy sauce). Each portion decorate with slices of ham, chives and fresh pepper.
