    Suggested uses

  • Vialone Nano’s ability to absorb so much liquid makes it more suitable for risotto than for soups

  • Combine with traditional flavors including pumpkin, snails, and game meat

  • Combine with chunky-cut ingredients such as pork, veal, artichokes and other vegetables

  • Use in seafood-style risottos

  • Basic prep

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup minced onion and stir for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add 1 cup Vialone Nano and stir to toast for 2 minutes. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over rice. Add 1/2 cup white wine and stir until absorbed. Heat 4 cups stock or water to a simmer. Stir in small amounts and stir almost constantly; add more stock as it is absorbed (you may not need it all). When rice is just done remove from heat and stir in diced cold butter and finely grated Parmesan cheese to taste.

    Classic Risotto alla Milanese
