Here is Gordon Ramsay's quick method of preparing risotto as described
on the web link at the bottom of this post. According to the website,
this is the method used to prepare risotto for the F Word TV series.

I have not tried it yet.

Paraphrased recipe follows:.

Risotto

400g (about 1 lb - 2 cups) risotto rice (such as arborio or carnaroli)
1 litre (about 4 cups) brown chicken (or vegetable) stock
150g (about 1-1/4 cups) shelled broad (fava) beans
150g (about 1-1/4 cups) peas (or petits pois), thawed if frozen
50g (about 1/2 cup) freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra shavings to serve
25g (about 1-1/2 Tbs) butter, cut into cubes
handful fresh chives(optional), chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

To prepare risotto, rinse rice under cold water and strain. Add to a pan with 2 cups of chicken stock and 2 cups of water. Add a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer and blanch rice for 7 minutes. Drain the rice well and spread the rice out on a lightly oiled tray. Allow to cool.

Finishing the risotto: In a shallow pan, place blanched rice and add just enough chicken stock to cover the rice. Quickly bring to a boil and cook until almost all of the stock is evaporated. Taste risotto to see if it is cooked to al dente. Add a little more stock if the risotto needs additional cooking. Add peas, fava beans, Parmesan and a few pieces of butter. Cook for a few more minutes until the beans are tender. Season to taste and add some fresh chives (optional).
