Leeky Lemon Risotto


Risotto is one of those dishes where what you put in, reaps exactly what you get out. Time consuming though it may be in the actual cooking of it, you can cook enough to serve a tableful of hungry souls,(provided you have a pot big enough!). And if you get it right – the silky, oozy, buttery richness will keep you coming back for seconds and thirds.

The humble cauliflower, though often overlooked, is actually a most cooperative vegetable. Roasted, boiled, mashed, pickled and steamed – it embraces most cooking methods, and gets along well with almost any flavour combination, thanks to its modest subtlety. Here, I have paired it with the gracious leek – a vegetable I find has a touch more depth than the onion, but embodies the same rich texture and punchy flavour. Annointed with the golden juice of a lemon and heaps of parmesan cheese, you simply can’t go wrong with this combination!
