HOW TO MAKE ARTICHOKE, CAPER AND LEMON RISOTTO
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and rice and cook for 1 minute, mixing well. Add the wine and allow it to bubble of. Have your stock to hand in a saucepan on a low simmer.
- Add a ladleful of the stock, and allow it to absorb before adding another ladleful. Repeat with the remaining stock – add a little more stock if needed.
- Once the risotto is ready, stir through the juice of 1 lemon and the zest. Season well and keep covered for a few minutes.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the olive oil then the artichokes and capers, fry for around 1 minute, then turn up the heat to medium-high and fry for another minute or until beginning to crisp. Add the remaining lemon juice and parsley and bubble for 30 seconds. Stir gently into the risotto then divide between 4 plates. Serve with grated Parmesan, if you like.
