  1. Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 146°F (63°C).
  2. Gently place the eggs into the water bath and set the timer for 45 minutes.

Finishing Steps

  1. When the timer goes off, gently remove the eggs from the water bath. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. When the butter stops foaming, add the mushrooms and leeks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the rice and thyme. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  3. Add one ladleful of chicken stock and the wine. Bring to a rapid simmer, stirring frequently. Continue to cook until liquid is almost completely reduced.
  4. Add a second ladleful of stock and continue to simmer, stirring frequently, until liquid is almost completely reduced. Repeat until rice is al dente, 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the peas and cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide between 4 serving plates or bowls.
  6. Gently crack each egg over each serving of risotto. Garnish with chives and serve.
