Heat the vegetable stock to near boiling point in a saucepan.
In a large saucepan sauté the onion in 4 tbspns of JOSEPH Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil for 2 minutes then add the eggplant and a good pinch of sea salt and continue to sauté for another 3 minutes till the eggplant has softened.
Under medium heat add the rice and stir the whole mixture for a minute then add the white wine and continue stirring for a further minute.
Begin to add the vegetable stock one ladle at a time as per normal risotto procedure. The eggplant effectively dissolves into the stock imparting a wonderful sublime texture.
Continue till the rice is cooked ‘al dente’, about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat
