Before you start

A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as side dish.

Method

  1. Finely chop the onion. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (which will take about 20 min).
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion then sauté 2-3 min, until it becomes translucent. Add the rice and toast the grains 1-2 min (until translucent), with constant stirring, then add the saffron.
  3. Cook the risotto until the rice is creamy but still al dente, about 20 min.
  4. Stir in the margarine, then let the risotto stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste, then serve.
