Leek, Blue Cheese & Mixed Nut Risotto

A delicious Leek, Blue Cheese & Mixed Nut Risotto recipe taken from the Dairy Diary 2021.






Leek, Blue Cheese & Mixed Nut Risotto

Ingredients

Butter 25g (1oz)

Leeks 3, trimmed and thinly sliced

Arborio or risotto rice 200g (7oz)

Dry sherry or vermouth 6 tbsp

Hot vegetable stock 1 litre (1¾ pints)

Long Clawson Shropshire blue cheese or other blue cheese 150g (5oz)

Mixed nuts 50g (2oz), toasted and roughly chopped

Instructions

1

Melt half the butter in a large pan, add leeks and cook gently for 5 minutes. Cover with a lid and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove lid, then stir in rice for 1 minute to combine.

2

Pour in sherry and simmer until absorbed. Add half the stock, stir well, and once almost absorbed, stir in half the remaining stock. Continue to add remaining stock while simmering for 10 minutes or until rice softens but retains bite.

3

Remove pan from heat and stir in remaining butter. Cover and leave for 5 minutes. Crumble over two-thirds of cheese and mix in. Spoon into 4 bowls. Crumble over remaining cheese, garnish with nuts and season with freshly ground black pepper.
