Ingredients list

  • 400 g risotto rice
  • 500 g artichokes
  • 40 g Butter
  • 50 ml dry white wine
  • 50 g parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 l vegetable broth
  • ¼ lemon
  • olive oil extra virgin
  • Salt
  • pepper


  • First, get ready a large bowl of cold water and drizzle the juice of the lemon.
  • Now remove the outer leaves of the artichokes and cut off the hard part of the top. Use a peeler to shave off the fibrous part of the stem. Then cut the artichokes in half, slice them and put them in the bowl with the lemon water. Let soak for about 10 minutes.
  • Heat some olive oil with half of the butter in a large pot. Add the rice and sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Deglaze with half of the white wine and let it reduce until the alcohol has completely evaporated.
  • Now pour a ladle of the vegetable broth into the pot and simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
  • Then keep adding a little broth and stir constantly. Once the broth is almost completely absorbed, repeat the process. This should take about 30 minutes in total. The rice should end up tender but still somewhat firm to the bite.
  • Meanwhile, heat a pan with a dash of olive oil and add the well-drained artichokes. Season with salt and pepper. Toss everything well, deglaze with the remaining wine and let it evaporate. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Then remove the pot with the finished tender risotto from the heat. Now add the cooked artichokes. Stir in the grated Parmigiano, the remaining butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the risotto in bowls or deep plates and serve hot.

Product recommendation for this recipe

Principato – Arborio rice

An icon of Italian quality rice, with a larger grain than other varieties and a high starch content. The tasty flavor is due to its easily absorbed carbohydrates and noble proteins.
