Preparation

In a large pan heat the tablespoon of oil and fry off the shallot pieces on low-medium heat till they get translucent. Add the rice and coat the grains in the oil and shallot, add the wine a little at a time constantly stirring for about 3 minutes, the edges of the rice grains will start turning translucent.

Add the stock, ladles full at a time, keep stirring to prevent risotto catching in bottom of the pot, let the rice soak up the liquid before adding more stock. Once there is about half the stock liquid left to add, stir in the minced garlic.

Add the black pepper, chopped coriander and yeast flakes stir well, turn off the heat and taste for seasoning, if it needs more pepper or salt (I didn't need any extra salt) add this now.
