Before you start

A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as main course.


  1. Finely chop the garlic, shallot and cauliflower. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (which will take about 20 min).
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the garlic and shallot then sauté 2-3 min, until they become translucent. Add the rice and toast the grains 1-2 min (until translucent), with constant stirring. Add the cauliflower then sauté 1 min.
  3. Cook the risotto until the rice is creamy but still al dente, about 20 min.
  4. Stir in the Parmesan and Gorgonzola cheese, then let the risotto stand for 2 min. Season with pepper to taste, then serve.
