Recipe Ingredients for RD's Fennel, Chorizo and Leek Risotto

1 1/2 litres chicken stock
1 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium leek, white part only, thinly sliced and washed
1 fennel bulb, quartered lengthwise, thinly sliced
200 g chorizo
325 g arborio rice
120 ml white wine
2 tbsp chopped parsley
2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for RD's Fennel, Chorizo and Leek Risotto

  1. Pour the stock into a saucepan, bring to a simmer and hold over low heat.

  2. Heat the oil or butter in a frying pan over medium heat, add the leeks, a pinch of salt and pepper, and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, until the leeks are wilted. Add the fennel, chorizo and garlic, and sauté for another few minutes. Add the rice and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

  3. Begin adding the stock a cup at a time, allowing the rice to absorb each cup of stock completely before adding more. Keep the pan on medium heat and continue to stir.

  4. When the rice has absorbed half the stock, add the wine. Continue adding stock, stirring constantly, until you have used most of the stock. As you stir in the last bit of stock, add a pinch of salt and a few pinches of pepper. The risotto should be quite saucy. Stir in the parsley, serve in warm bowls, and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
