FOOD, My recipes, Uncategorized TOMATO, CHORIZO & SPINACH RISOTTO 3 February 2007

Decided to make risotto again the other night.. poked around the supermarket to pick up whatever I could find that looked interesting. So ended up with a Tomato, Chorizo Sausage and Spinach Risotto. I only used 1 cup of uncooked Arborio rice, but that somehow made enough for about 3 full meals because of the sheer amount of ingredients I stuffed in there 😛 Great comfort food, and it was tasty too.

    Now that you mention chorizo sausage, have you tried the chorizo rolls at the Chatswood Thursday night stalls? Use plenty of the orange sauce. It’s not particularly spicy, but it’s *very* tasty.

      It’s just standard rice for risotto, so it should be available at any grocery store!
