Chicken, Bacon, Pumpkin & Spinach Risotto

    Smile Very nice and so easy

    This is an amazing base risotto recipe to do a veggie bin clean out. Swapped out spinach and pumpkin for literally anything. Have pinned this bad boy for frequent, weeknight use.

    Was lazy and didn't clean the bowl after grating the cheese. I also threw bacon and other veggies in with onion and garlic.

    Swapped out wine for chicken stock and inserted the butterfly when adding the rice.

    Love flavour. Love the ingredients. I freeze for lunch meals too.

    Really tasty, I forgot how much risotto the TM can make! I substituted water for wine, and used leftover roast veg (carrot and pumpkin) and leftover mushroom/bacon, which I lightly fried both in the saucepan before adding.

    Super tasty, the whole family loved it, it made a good amount, my big girl asked if she could take the leftovers to school for lunch!! A bit too much spinach for the toddlers liking so I think I'll halve that next time and we would prefer it less runny, for reference I put in 800g of water which put me a the suggested level, so next time I'll try 700g or even 600g.
    I didn't use the butterfly and had no issues.
