For the vegetable broth:

  • 1 stalk celery coarsely chopped
  • 1.5 l water
  • 1 small onion cut into quarters
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 carrot coarsely chopped

For the risotto:


  • Prepare the broth by combining all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer gently 30 minutes over low heat. Filter.
  • In a saucepan, brown the onion in the oil, 5 minutes over medium heat. Include the rice and stir for 2 minutes to flavor. Add the mushrooms and wine and deglaze. Do the same with the ham and mix.
  • Pour 250ml of broth in the risotto pot and shake gently, so that the rice does not burn on the bottom.
  • About 5 minutes later, add 250ml more of broth and stir.
  • Continue cooking the rice for about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, add parsley, butter and Parmesan and stir 1 minute before serving.
