Tomato and tofu risotto

Tomato and tofu risotto

Made with Double concentrated tomato paste

The Double Concentrated Tomato Puree is bold, dense and intense, and in its various versions is ideal to enhance the colour, taste and texture of your dishes. This is a traditional product as its resistance to long cooking times makes it ideal for ragù sauce and stews, but it is surprisingly successful in bringing out the best in quicker, more creative recipes: from the dressing of pies and quiches, to delicious side sauces and tasty pestos with pasta. It takes 5.5 kg of fresh tomatoes to make 1 kg of Double Concentrated Tomato Puree.

Tomato and tofu risotto: Method

  1. Halve and peel the onion. Cut the onion halves and fennel bulb into thin strips.
  2. Cut the tofu into slices and season with Mutti Triple Paste, mixed herbs and crushed garlic.
  3. Put the stock and orange juice into a saucepan and bring to boil.
  4. Using another saucepan, sauté the onion and fennel in olive oil for a couple of minutes. Rinse the rice and add to the pan along with the Mutti Triple Paste and continue sautéing for another minute.
  5. Add the hot stock into the pan in four batches; after each batch, wait until the rice has absorbed the stock before adding the next one. Cook the risotto at a slow simmer, stirring every now and then. Once cooked, stir in in the parmesan.
  6. Taste the rice – the risotto is ready as soon as the rice is al dente, the cooking time being approximately 20–25 minutes. A proper risotto should be a little bit runny, so if necessary, add a little bit of stock to the cooked risotto to correct its texture to your liking.
  7. Serve the risotto onto warmed plates and place the slices of tofu on top. Enjoy!
