Traditionally enjoyed by the local farmers for making a simple risotto or soup, this type of rice is today gaining much popularity due to its texture and high nutritional value.
Contessa Rosetta Clara's suggestion: "At my table, I serve this wonderful brown-like rice with braised meats or porcini mushrooms, as well as in stuffing tomatoes and in rice salads during the summer months."
- Hearty winter soups and stir-fried vegetables are the perfect match for this rice
- Mix it with grilled asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, capers and a splash of red wine vinegar
- Cook it as risotto, adding warm stock gradually, while stirring
