How to make risotto with artichokes: the preparation

  1. First of all, start by cleaning the artichokes. Remove all the outer leaves , then also remove the inner beard and finally separate the hearts from the stems. Put the artichokes in cold water and lemon , so they don't oxidize and blacken. In the meantime, also prepare the vegetable broth that you will need for this recipe.
  2. In a saucepan, sauté the artichokes in a pan with salt, pepper and oil. They will take at least ten minutes to soften : you can pour some broth to continue cooking. For a creamy risotto with artichokes you can blend a part of them and keep it aside, adding it when cooked, before stirring.
  3. In another pan, start preparing the risotto: toast the rice with the onion and oil, pour in the wine and let it evaporate. Then gradually add the broth.
  4. Halfway through cooking, around ten minutes, add the previously cooked artichokes and continue with the recipe. Cook until the rice is al dente and then stir in the butter, cheese, pepper and fresh parsley and serve.
