Baked Chorizo & Spring Green Risotto

Baked Chorizo & Spring Green Risotto

Mid week heart warming meal

No special equipment required.

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finally chopped
  • 250g frozen sliced leeks
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 100g frozen diced chorizo
  • 250g arborio rice
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 reduced-salt chicken stock, made up to 1.5 ltrs
  • 240g pack spring greens
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan 160°C. Heat the oil in a deep, lidded flameproof casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the onion, leeks, garlic and chorizo and fry for 5-8 mins until the chorizo has released its oil and the veg has softened. Increase the heat to high, add the rice and stir for 2-3 mins until it has started to go translucent around the edges.
  2. Pour in the vinegar and chicken stock and put the lid on the casserole dish. Transfer to the oven and bake for 40 mins or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender.
  3. Stir through the spring greens and lemon juice; season with pepper. Replace the lid and leave to stand for 2 mins for the greens to wilt. Scatter with the lemon zest to serve.
