Cauliflower Risotto

It is some time since I have written a recipe I am pretty sure the you are all wanting one aren't you know , having brought some Ostrich to cook the other day I needed a simple dish to go with it. The Ostrich was not alive can you imagine that trying to get out my catflap oooh it would get stuck. A few weeks ago I went to Berlin and I must admit I got rather used to having the cooking done for me. Though I now back with a vengeance , ps  If you do cook Ostrich then flash fry it and it will only take about 2 minutes in each side , it cooks really quickly.


Ingredients

225g risotto rice 

Red Onion chopped

1 garlic clove crushed

Half a cauliflower broken into small florets

Knob of butter add more if require

Salt and pepper as you like it.

1 pint of Chicken Stock


Method

In a large sauce pan fry the onion and add the garlic in the butter for a couple of minutes.

Next add the risotto rice make sure it is coated by the butter, stir until  translucent.

Add a cupful or ladle of the chicken stock and stir well until the stock has been absorbed , next add the rest of the stock.

In the last 7 minutes add the cauliflower.

Add a further knob of butter and stir through.

Seasonings are up to you but it delightful to add a generous grinding of black pepper and a twist of the salt mill.

Give a vigorous stir and serve .

  8. I do love a nice risotto and I like cauliflower too, but I'm not so sure about the ostrich. I guess you don't really need that though.
