Whether as an appetizer or main meal - this risotto convinces by its taste and contains a lot of calcium and vitamin B12, which are contained in the buffalo mozzarella. Calcium gives our bones stability and is involved in muscle and nerve stimulation, while vitamin B12 provides fresh blood and thus more vitality.
You can also prepare the risotto with wholemeal rice with the germ and edge layers still present. This natural rice takes a little longer to cook. But you will be rewarded with an extra portion of vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Boil the vegetable broth and keep warm.

Deglaze rice with white wine bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring, until the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes.
Ladle in about 1/3 of the hot broth and cook, stirring frequently, until almost all liquid is absorbed. Continue to add broth in this manner and cook until rice is al dente, about 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

5 minutes before end of rice cooking time, heat the remaining oil in a skillet and cook the tomatoes over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
