Method

  1. Add the onion to a wide, deep-sided frying pan. Add the olive oil and onion and cook for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft but not coloured.
  2. Stir in the risotto rice and cook for 2 minutes until the rice is coated with the oil and then add the Prosecco and thyme.

Cooks tips

Parmesan Crisps:

Pre-heat the grill and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Grate a thin layer of Parmesan into a round metal ring or draw circles on the baking paper.

Place the baking tray under the grill for 3-5 minutes until the cheese has melted and the crisp turns a light golden brown.

Remove carefully with a palette knife and place onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
