Tomato Risotto with Caramelized Shallots

Risotto is a dish that I love and that I oddly enough always tend to not think of when I am planning what to cook.

My last risotto attempt included tomatoes. I know it is not the most imaginative idea, but I LOVE tomatoes. I love their taste, I love their look (especially when talking about old tomato varieties) and I love to grow them by myself.

A lot of people use to put additional spices to the tomatoes, but I prefer the version with only salt and pepper. Originally Bruschetta is made with white Bread, but it is possible with whatever bread you like. In this case, I used dark rye bread with caraway.
