For the risotto
1. Heat the stock in a pot over low heat and keep it simmering.
2. Heat the oil in another pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice, making sure every grain is coated in oil, and fry for 1 minute, until it starts to look transparent. Add the wine and keep stirring until all the liquid is absorbed.
3. Add 1 cup hot stock to the risotto, stirring continuously until the liquid has been absorbed. Repeat cup by cup, until all the stock has been absorbed and the rice is tender.
4. Add the tomatoes and season. Cook for 5 minutes.
