Sevillian risotto recipe
Finely chop the basil leaves.
Drain the black olives, half the anchovies and the capers.
Peel the garlic and degerm it.
Combine all the ingredients in a blender jug, then blend finely, gradually adding the olive oil, until you obtain a smooth puree. Season with pepper and finish with a few drops of lemon juice.
Finely dice the onion.
In a hot pot with olive oil, sweat the onion with a pinch of salt. Then add the rice and coat with oil until it becomes translucent.
Deglaze with the white wine and stir until it has evaporated.
Then add 1/3 of the broth, reduce the heat and stir regularly. When the broth has reduced by 3/4, add the green olives and return the same amount of broth as before. Adjust the cooking of the risotto with the remaining 1/3.
Once the desired doneness is achieved, remove the pan from the heat then add the black olive tapenade, anchovies and chopped basil. Adjust seasoning.
If you want to add a creamier side, you can coat your risotto with butter or cream, all off the heat.
