Accessories you need



This served 2 adults for a main meal (quite large serves) but would also be suitable as a side dish for 4 people.

I used 200g of bone broth when I made it (see photo) but it may be a bit too runny for some hence why I have reduced to 150g in the ingredient list. If you prefer a more creamy 'risotto' feel free to replace 50g of the liquid with an extra 50g of coconut cream.

    I put this in a small baking pan and baked it with a sprinkle of parmesan and served it as a side dish. I also grilled all the bacon (as the first time I cooked this dish the bacon added at the beginning wasn't crisp) and stirred it in at the end. Very tasty!

    I added about 20g of nutritional yeast at the last step, tastes soooo good!
