A healthy recipe for two
Do you have a favourite risotto recipe that you go back to, time and time again? This recipe below, is on our dinner rotation regularly, as it is easy to make, healthy, filling and there is usually a small amount of leftovers for the next day. It does require standing by the stove for about half an hour, stirring the pot occasionally and adding more stock as required, but the results are worth it if you love a tasty risotto.
Feel free to use this recipe as a base and add your own favourite ingredients, such as pine nuts, kale, feta cheese, leek, beans, different types of mushrooms or BBQ chicken instead of chicken thighs. The best part of cooking is changing a recipe to suit your own tastes, so why don't you give it a try this weekend? I can guarantee that you won't be hungry afterwards!
Step 7: Add 1 ladle of stock to the saucepan, and stir until it is absorbed. Repeat adding the stock, 1 ladle at a time, until all the excess stock has been absorbed (which takes about 20 - 30 minutes).
Step 8: Stir through pumpkin, spinach and a generous amount of cracked pepper and serve. Add your own favourite ingredients and enjoy a risotto this weekend!
Steps 7 - 8, ladle the stock in one at a time, then add the spinach, pumpkin and pepper
