 100g of frozen peas

 Risotto rice

Method

Fry the bacon lardons in some rapeseed oil on the hob. Use a wok or high sided pan.

Add the chopped garlic and finely chopped sprouts to the pan and allow to fry until slightly brown.

Add the risotto rice to the pan using quantities directed on the packet per person.

After a minute or so, add in some chicken stock.

Never allow the mixture to dry up but feed the risotto mixture every now and again.

Shortly before serving, add in some frozen peas and cream and allow to cook for a further two minutes.

Serve with a parmesan cheese garnish and black pepper on top

Merry Christmas one and all. I hope you can celebrate with your nearest and dearest and look forward to what lies ahead in 2023. Thank you for all your support.
