Red Pepper Risotto

Roasted Red Pepper Risotto

Hello everyone, I apologise for not posting any new recipe the past week but it has been a very stressful, full of things to do and as a consequence I couldn’t find any time to blog. Anyways, life goes on and we should always look at the positive side of things and cooking is one of those, so today I cooked a new recipe, I wanted to try for so long. Basically this is a roasted  red pepper risotto as I finally managed to find the red sweet peppers. Used a homemade vegetable stock, put a spoonful of ricotta and chives on the top. I loved the results, this red pepper risotto came out a creamy, colourful but most of all a very healthy one. The roasted pepper produced a sweet and light smoky flavour at the same time which blended perfectly well with the ricotta and the chives. I highly recommend trying this very interesting risotto as it is absolutely delicious to eat and beautiful to look at.

Red Pepper fruit

Cooking time: 90 min

Serves: 2 people

 

Ingredients:

200 gr of red sweet pepper

160 gr of Arborio rice

50 gr of ricotta

30 gr of fresh chives

1/2  glass of white wine

For the stock ( 1/3 of leek, 1 carrot, 1/3 of celery stalk)

Salt

Olive oil

The preparation:

First of all, place the peppers on a tray and bake them on the grill option for about 40 minutes or until brown on the skin, after that place the red peppers on a plastic bag to cool down for about 10 minutes (this way the skin comes off very easy).

Roasted Red Pepper

Then, take the skin out, add some salt, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, fresh chives and blend until you have a creamy texture.

Red Pepper dip Sauce

Secondly, on a deep sauce pan add the vegetables for the stock, add some salt and 4-5 glasses of water and bring to boil or let to cook for about 15-20 minutes on a medium heat. When the stock is ready, it is time to prepare the risotto. In a frying pan add a drizzle of olive oil, the rice and toast it by carefully stirring with a wooden spoon for about 3 -4 minutes on a medium heat then add the wine and let evaporate.

As soon as it evaporates add one kitchen spoon of the vegetable stock over the rice and stir until it absorbs the stock, continue this process until the rice is cooked (be careful the rice should be almost al dente, not mushy.) When you are happy with the rice, add the red pepper smooth texture, taste for salt and mix everything together.

Once all the ingredients are blended together, place it of the plate and add a spoonful of ricotta blended with some salt and chives of the top.

Hope you enjoyed this brilliant red colour recipe as much as I did, as the results were very nice using few ingredients with such little effort.

See you in the next recipe!

Enjoy!

    1. Aww thank you so much Cheyanne for the nicest comment. It is the little things like this that really warms you heart. Life has its ups and downs, you have to deal with people different to you, who don’t think about the consequences their action have upon you. Everyday you learn new lessons, I guess. Thank you again friend, hope you have a nice weekend.

  18. Lovely! I’ve made this before with a product that’s called Paprika Creme – it’s Hungarian. It’s so easy to grab it for a polenta, risotto, whatever, plus you can slather tenderloins or chicken with it!! I rarely use bottled/jarred ingredients, but that one is fabulous!

  21. […] Anyway, the good thing was that as soon as we came back home I felt very inspired to use quality ingredients to make delicious recipes just like this Saffron risotto recipe. I know that a lot of people think it is very difficult to cook a good risotto but I will reveal you all the tricks for a good Saffron risotto and I promise you will love the results. To tell you the truth I have been observing my husband a lot before attempting  to make one but I love challenges so I gave it a go 6 months ago and since then risotto has no secrets to me anymore, lol. This Saffron risotto recipe is very easy indeed and the results are amazing as the taste is amazingly creamy and the colours are very fascinating. Who ever follows this blog know that I don’t use artificial colours or preservatives on my recipes, so I am  really happy to have these results from natural ingredients.
