- In a pot, add some olive oil and sauté the onions over medium heat, for at least 8 minutes. At the same time warm the chicken stock. As soon as the onions are soft, add the rice and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
- Maintaining medium heat, pour in a generous amount of the stock. Add enough to cover the rice and stir continuously. As soon as it is absorbed, add another spoonful of stock, and allow it to be absorbed. Repeat this process until the rice is ready (about 18 minutes).
- In the meantime, prepare the herb oil. Fill a small sauce pan with water and add a generous amount of salt. Bring to a boil. Add all of the herbs. Use only the leaves, not the stems. Boil for 1 minute. Strain immediately and put them in a mixer, along with the olive oil. Mix until all of the herbs have emulsified. Pass the mixture through a sieve. Use only the bright green oil that is full of the aroma of the herbs.
- As soon as the rice is ready, remove from heat. Add the herb oil, grated zest, parmesan, salt and pepper. Stir. Allow the risotto to rest for 1 minute. Season to taste and add more stock if necessary, so that it is as nice and creamy as it should be. Serve immediately and sprinkle some more parmesan over the top.
