4 Secrets to Perfect Thermomix® Risotto
Thanks to Thermomix®, all you need to do to make the perfect risotto is gather your ingredients. If you want to get creative and try your own recipe, check out our tips:
1) Always choose a rice that is suitable for risotto. Some recommended varieties are:
Carnaroli: always al dente, great for sea and land risotto
Vialone nano: rich in starches, ideal for creamy risottos especially with vegetables
Roma: for risotto with a soft and wavy consistency
Baldo: good capacity to absorb seasonings and liquids, has a great creamy texture
2) Toast the rice for 3 min/250°F//speed 1 before cooking to ensure the risotto grains remain intact throughout cooking.
3) Flavor the rice with wine or beer to capture the aromas that will give your risotto an extra special taste.
4) Once cooking is complete, stir in butter and/or cheese, to give the risotto a beautiful sheen and creamy consistency.
