1. Vegetable Risotto Mediterranean with Oven Vegetables

This risotto is made Mediterranean by the selected vegetables and the preparation: I prepare the vegetables consisting of courgettes, eggplants, mushrooms and tomatoes in the oven. This is practical and does little work. Put a baking paper on the baking tray, cut the vegetables into bite-sized pieces except for the cocktail tomatoes and distribute the vegetables on the baking paper. I season the vegetables gently with salt, pepper, thyme and sprinkle the vegetables with a little olive oil. Leave the tomatoes whole and sprinkle with some sugar, so they caramelise in the oven quite delicious. Now place the prepared vegetables in the preheated oven at 200°C hot air for about 30 minutes.

This risotto with vegetables is delicious and delights the palate with its fantastic combination of roasted vegetables, thyme and creamy truffle foam.

2. Vegetarian Risotto homemade

While the vegetables are cooking in the oven I prepare the risotto on the stove. The risotto rice comes today directly into the pot with some butter and olive oil. Sweat the risotto rice carefully without colour, this is called toasting.  Now quickly deglaze with dry white wine and vegetable broth and continue cooking the risotto simmering lightly while stirring.

3. Truffle Foam or White Truffle Sauce with Risotto and Vegetables

In this dish, the sauce is made directly in the risotto pot: In the next step, add cream to the risotto mixture. You can use soy cream or normal cow’s milk cream or whipped cream. Let the cream slowly soak into the boiling risotto so that the cream does not flocculate. The practical thing about this dish is that the truffle sauce is made when you prepare the risotto and you don’t need any extra sauce. I keep the risotto for it additionally with broth rather liquid. Now grate the cheese finely, pluck some thyme freshly, season the risotto with salt, pepper and some nutmeg. The rice now has the perfect consistency after about 18-20 minutes. I now pass the cream stock from the risotto pot into an extra pot and boil the cream sauce once. Stir the risotto with some cheese, butter and olive oil until creamy and season to taste. Arrange the risotto on warm plates and add the vegetables from the oven. Refine the cream sauce with truffle oil, mix until foamy with a hand blender and add to the risotto. Sprinkle the risotto with thyme and cheese and serve quickly. WOW! That turned out great.

WOW, the vegetable risotto looks delicious: With Mediterranean oven vegetables, truffle sauce and thyme you conjure up an excellent dream risotto on your plate.
