Level: Easy

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Preparation time: 30 minutes


Recipe Ingredients:


320 g rice

1 l vegetable broth

50 g grated cheese

30 g extra virgin olive oil

1 beetroot

50 g white wine

2 shallots

30 g butter


200 g taleggio cheese

grated nutmeg to taste

100 g fresh cream

ground pepper to taste


160 g broccoli

Marjoram, some leaves

4 Amaretti D'Italia



  1. Wash the broccoli thoroughly, pick off the leaves, cut the florets beneath the flower canopy.

Trim the stems of florets to an even length and cut them into smaller pieces.

After boiling them in salted water for about 2 minutes, plunge the broccoli into an ice bath, so they stay crunchy.

  1. Slice shallots, dice the ready-cooked beetroot, pureeing the beetroot with a little bit of vegetable broth in a vegetable mill.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan, add shallots and cook on medium-low until the shallot is translucent.

Add the uncooked rice and stir. Add Wine and cook until it's absorbed.

As soon as the rice is almost dry, add more vegetable broth and then some beetroot mixture. When the rice is ready, add butter, grated cheese and the rest of the beetroot mixture.

In the meantime, make the cheese fondue by heating the fresh cream until it reaches 80 degrees.

Turn off the stove and mix the diced taleggio cheese. Add pepper and grated nutmeg to the cream obtained. The fondue is ready now.

Finally, sauté broccoli with oil, salt and pepper.

Garnish risotto with fondue, broccoli, a marjoram leave and crumbled Amaretti d’Italia’s.
