Recipe Ingredients for Cannellini bean and red onion risotto

1 tbsp Olive oil
1 red onion, large, finely chopped
2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 tsp Thyme
500 g Risotto rice
1 liter stock, vegetable
800 g canned cannellini beans,
2 tbsp finely grated Parmesan

Recipe Directions for Cannellini bean and red onion risotto

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and gently cook the onion, garlic and thyme for 5 minutes until softened. Add the rice, stir for a few seconds then pour in the wine.

  2. Bubble rapidly until the wine evaporates, then slowly add the stock in batches, letting the rice absorb the liquid each time before adding more. Add the beans about halfway through - keep the heat fairly high and the whole process should take about 20 minutes.

  3. Season with pepper. Once all the liquid has been absorbed and the grains are soft and creamy, divide the risotto between bowls. Top each serving with a sprinkling of Parmesan and a good grinding of black pepper and serve swiftly.
