About Irish Oat Risotto
Risotto is a rice dish typical in Northern Italy. The specific way of cooking rice is a wonderful culinary technique for other grains and legumes.
First, the grain is toasted, then you add small amounts of warm water or stock, always allowing the liquid to absorb before adding more. The process slowly releases the starch of the grain, making the dish creamy. Typically, cook the grain to al dente. Some tooth in the rice, in this case, oats, makes the risotto have texture.
