Heat the oil, sauté the onion, add the rice and sauté until translucent, stirring occasionally. Add the wine and reduce almost completely. Add the stock, stirring frequently, ensuring that the rice is covered with a small amount of liquid at all times. Simmer for approx. 20 mins. until the rice is creamy and al dente. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the butter, season with salt.

Heat the butter and sweat the onion. Add the honey and briefly continue to sauté. Pour in the wine, bring to the boil and reduce to half the amount. Add the cicorino and thyme, season. Stir in the vinegar, simmer the cicorino over a medium heat for around 10 mins.
