How to prepare turmeric risotto with zucchini

  1. First, finely chop the shallot . Fry it in a saucepan 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. Deglaze with the white wine and when you no longer feel the smell of alcohol rising from the steam in the pot, start adding broth in such quantities as to cover the rice with a veil.
  3. Separately, grate the courgettes after having washed them and removed the ends, with a grater with large holes. Add them to the rice and mix quickly.
  4. Continue cooking for about 15-18 minutes , continuing to add the broth little by little. When cooked, adjust the 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. Distributed on plates and completed with the almonds coarsely chopped with a knife. If you like, add some grated cheese.
