Ingredients list

Directions

  • Peel and finely chop the onion.
  • Melt ⅔ of the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and onion and sauté briefly.
  • Now add the rice to the pot and lightly toast it, stirring constantly and on high heat. Then deglaze with a ladle of broth and reduce the heat. Simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Then keep adding a little broth and stir constantly. Once the broth is almost completely absorbed, repeat the process. This should take about 20 to 25 minutes in total. The rice should end up tender but still somewhat firm to the bite. About halfway through, add the peas and a few leaves of finely chopped mint to taste.
  • Then remove the pot from the heat. Add the grated Parmesan cheese and the remaining butter. Season with salt and pepper, mix thoroughly and let stand briefly.
  • Arrange the risotto in bowls or deep plates, garnish with a leaf of mint and serve immediately.
    Buon appetito!
