Healthy, because

Even smarter

Who would have thought that canned tomatoes contain nutrients? The lycopene contained in tomatoes acts as an antioxidant and protects our cells from free radical damage. Cheese and crème fraîche score points with lots of protein as well as calcium. This mineral is important for strong bones and teeth.

Whoever gets some should use whole grain risotto rice, because it contains more fibre, vitamins and minerals than husked rice. This may increase the cooking time and the amount of stock required.

Preparation steps

1.

Peel shallot and garlic and chop finely. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan and saute shallot and garlic until translucent. Add rice and saute until rice becomes translucent. Deglaze pan with wine and cook, stirring, until wine is completely absorbed. Add tomatoes. Pour in enough broth so that rice is just covered and continue cooking, stirring, until almost all liquid has absorbed. 

2.

Continue to add broth in this manner and cook until rice is al dente, stirring frequently. Add creme fraiche and Parmesan and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley and serve.
