Could I ask what EVO is? Here in the States, it's high-end grain-free pet food which I'm guessing is not what's needed here.  ;D

ha ha you could try that MacGuffin for a different flavour, but would recommend that Extra Virgin Olive Oil may taste better  ;D

Hello. I made porridge last night instead of risotto. It was a total disaster! I got the recipe from my tmx rep. He said that the most probable reason for the mess was the rice I used. I used a supermarket reg risotto and he said it isnt a good one at all. COuld this be the reason?

My recipe was:
30 gr Parmesan
half an onion
1 garlic clove
25gr olive oil
250 gr risotto
50 gr white wine (which kind??)
550 gr veg stock (how many tsp of theveg paste made in the tmx??)
100 gr fresh mushrooms


grind parmesan for 10 secs at speed 9 and put aside
onions and garlic speed 5 for 4 secs
Add oil and saute for 3 minutes,speed one at 100C
Add rice and wine use the reverse blade  at 100C speed 1 for 2 mins
Add the stock and mushrooms revesre blade setting, 15 mins speed 1

SO I did all this exactly (very basic) but after 15 mins the liquid and mushrooms were still "floating" at the top-no sign of the rice and the liquid was barely warm although it was showing 100C. I opened it all up, dug deep to find hot but uncooked rice at the bottom. No matter what I did, it didnt cook. Eventually I went to higher speed with the reverse setting and I ended up with porridge and even then the rice was not entirely cooked after an hour!!!
Does anyone know what happended? COuld it be the type of risotto? Thank you for any help!

Did you compare it to Farfallina's recipe on this page Ilana?  I have used ordinary risotto rice from the supermarket and it hasn't made any difference to my meal - OK better brands will do a better job but I wouldn't blame the rice entirely.  This recipe your rep gave you doesn't seem to have enough liquid.  The white wine used is a dry white and you would probably use a tablespoon of vegie stock per 500mls of liquid.  Sometimes you need to stir the food with the spatula to get it moving and always have a peek through the hole during cooking to ensure it is still moving. I only ever chop my onion for 2 seconds/speed 5. Leave the risotto to sit for just 5 minutes at the end of the cooking time - either in the bowl or in the thermosaver. It will absorb the excess liquid and continue cooking.

Oh thank you sooo much! Yes his recipe does not seem right compared to others. Some did say rice does make a diff but cant be the only reason-that is what my common sense told me. Well I made patties-added eggs, gluten free bread crumbs, chopped onion and parsley and fried. I guess because they are fried patties-which can never really be bad, they are decent! While reading through all the posts you suggested and these posts took me to others... I saw someone else had exactly th same patty idea!! Gave me a smile. SO next Friday I will try again. I will try to source a better type of Risotto as well. Thank you all very much!!

Thanks Farfallina for sharing this recipe, I love risotto but used to hate stirring it while making it on stove top.
This will surely be my go to risotto recipe from now onward. It was just perfect, hubby liked it as well :)
