    Can I make Risotto without oil or butter please? Going to make some with to go with some pork medallians.

    I have garlic, sping onions, chicken stock and parmesan, but never made it before. I have some frylight!

    Any tips?
    :)

    Absolutely, I just use frylight to fry off the main ingredients and now cook them in the oven using the method in the red pepper risotto recipe given here. It's maybe not quite as creamy but still tastes great.

    Or you could use a tbsp of olive oil as a HEB.

    Yes you can absolutely make a risotto without butter or oil as its a "wet" dish. In fact I'm making a mushroom risotto for dinner tonight! You can stir in some HEA parmesan or quark at the end for extra creaminess.

    Yes you can make risotto! There is a lovely dish in the extra easy cookbook which I have made a few times and it is lovely!

    Good luck

    I just love risotto! Use frylight instead of oil and add whatever you like with stock made from bovril. Mushroom, chicken veg and seafood risotto is scrummy!
