Risotto perfectly fits in our Happie concept. It’s very easy to make and combines very nicely with all local vegetables delivered to you.
Creamy Lemon Zucchini Risotto
2 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons of vegetable stock
Butter, salt, and pepper
Make sure that all of your ingredients are ready to go before you start. Chop the onion, garlic, and zucchini into small pieces, and slide the mushrooms in quarters. Mix two to three teaspoons of vegetable stock with around 400ML of boiling water. Now you can start.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the saucepan medium heat. Now you can add the chopped onion, garlic, zucchini and mushrooms and cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the rice and toss it with the butter and onion. Cook it until the grains begin to color, this takes roughly 3 minutes.
Optionally you can add a bit of white wine (sorry, we don’t supply this in your Happie bag!)
Begin to add the broth (vegetable stock) bit by bit. Add a bit and stir around until the rice has absorbed all the liquid. Then you can add another bit of broth.
The rice is ready when it is al dente (try it occasionally), at least no more than 20 minutes. Now you can add two tablespoons of nutritional yeast and juice of half the lemon. You can add a bit of last broth and stir it around.
Enjoy your Happie Dinner!
