Ingredients for two people

  • 10 cloves of black garlic (one whole head)

  • 1 lime
  • 50 ml white wine (dry)

How to prepare the recipe for risotto with black garlic and parmesan?

As a first step, grate some of the Parmesan cheese and prepare the crispies by placing four mounds on a baking tray on silpat or baking paper. Bake at 180ºC for 5 minutes or until they start to brown. Allow to cool until ready to serve in the final step.

Crush the garlic cloves with the vegetable stock, put them in a saucepan and keep them warm on a low heat while the other ingredients of this recipe are being prepared. Next, peel the onion very finely and brown it in a frying pan with half of the butter (20 g) using it as fat.

Once the onion is translucent, add the rice to the same pan, stir and fry for about a minute. Then add the white wine, turn up the heat and allow the alcohol in the white wine to evaporate before adding the hot, crushed vegetable stock and the garlic. Add this stock ladle by ladle, without adding the next ladle until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.

Stir the rice throughout the cooking process to release the starch and bind the grains together so that it becomes a creamy morsel. After 18 minutes the risotto is almost ready.

All that remains is to add the grated Parmesan cheese and the butter. Stir everything together and add additional salt if necessary. Finally, let the risotto rest for a few minutes before sprinkling the parmesan crisps and lime zest on top.

Now all that’s left is to enjoy this delicious risotto with black garlic and parmesan! We hope you enjoy it.
