How to prepare turmeric risotto with courgettes

  1. First, finely chop the shallot . Fry it in a pan with two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (butter is fine too) until it becomes transparent. Then add the rice and toast it for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the white wine and when you no longer smell the alcohol rising from the steam in the pan, start adding enough broth to cover the rice.
  3. Separately, grate the courgettes after having washed them and removed the ends, using a grater with large holes. Add them to the rice and mix quickly.
  4. Continue cooking for approximately 15-18 minutes , continuing to add the broth little by little. Once cooked, season with salt and add the turmeric . It is important to add it at the end because unlike saffron it tends to lose its properties with heat.
  5. Distribute on plates and complete with the almonds roughly chopped with a knife. If you like, add some grated cheese.
