Have got some yummy stock from a roast chicken and some fresh veg that needs eating and was going to knock up a quick risotto for friends coming round at 9pm. Now discovered - no onions!Can I make a risotto without onions, and if so, how?! Or is it time for a radical rethink?Thanks!
I'd have thought if you've got enough other tasty stuff it'd be OK without onions.Got any garlic? Leeks?
Plenty of garlic, but no leeks.Usually I fry off the onions, then add the rice until it has started to turn clear, add a splash of vermouth and then get going with the stock.Not sure how to begin wihtout onions?
I make loads of stuff without onions as DH doesn't like them. It will taste fine, just less of onions than normal.order wise I do oil, garlic, chicken, mushrooms and leeks, then rice and stock with other veg.
I'd just do as usual, with the rice in just after the garlic. Could do the chicken before the rice but tbh I think the texture is nicer if you poach it and then shred it, adding it at the end.
