Soul Food Sunday #3


Time for another foody blog post.

I've had Risotto a couple of times this week, the first one I had was made using stuff from the fridge that needed using up.

I took my little chopping machine out, it's so cool, you just put your food in and pull the cord a few times!

So I chopped a leek, half an onion, 3 mushrooms, small piece of brocoli including the stalk, a green pepper, some butternut squash.

I sprayed my pan with frylight and fried some of my chopped mix with a bit of bacon with no fat.

After 5 minutes, I added a handful of rice and a cup of chicken stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Tasted great, used up a few bits, and syn free!

The other Risotto I had was made by Amber, she makes great risotto, always makes me feel a bit better when things are a bit rubbish.

Here's Amber's instructions...

Gently fry a chopped onion for 5 minutes

Add some uncooked rice to the onion for a couple of minutes

Add some veggie stock with Worcester sauce, and a chopped pepper and some Mange Tout, bring to the boil and simmer for 12 minutes.

Thanks for stopping by, see you Tuesday!
