This is another one of my sister's vegetarian recipes which has become a family favorite.

120ml/½ cup dry white wine
1 litre of vegetable stock
Salt and ground black pepper
115g/4 oz. parmesan cheese---coarsely grated
4 eggs separated
Sliced tomato and chopped parsley for garnish

Blanch broccoli for 3 mins. drain and reserve
In large saucepan, sauté onion, garlic and pepper in butter and oil for 5 mins. until soft
Stir in rice, cook for a minute then pour in wine and cook, stirring mixture until liquid is absorbed
Pour in stock, season well, bring to the boil and lower to simmer. Cook for 20 mins. stirring occasionally
Meanwhile grease a 10 inch round, deep tin and line the bottom with greaseproof paper.
Stir in the cheese and allow the mixture to cool for 5 mins.---then beat in the egg yolks

This sounds really good and I think I'm going to have to copy it down. So many recipes can't be adjusted and made so we can eat them but this one definitely can. And I loooove cheese! :)

Thanks for posting this! :) I admit that I'm a slacker and not posting recipes. :(

This one can be eaten either heated, say with some pesto potatoes or unheated with a salad, it is a great torte.

I haven't posted all that many recipes either, I keep getting distracted by memes and question posts, I still owe one of those!! I think it is baking for December, I might manage a few more this time:))

When is it your parents arrive? I hope you have a good visit:))
