Tip

 

To make preparation even quicker – you could chop the fennel with the onion and garlic.

 

 

 

Don’t be tempted to cook the quisotto further – it will look like it needs longer, but sitting it for 10 minutes will make it just right. Have faith!!

 

 

 

Leave prosciutto out for a vegetarian dish.

    This was nice, I would give it 3.5 stars. It is a tasty way of cooking quinoa, but if I'm frank it does not really emulate risotto. But then of course it's FAR healthier than risotto!

    The dish in its own right: the flavour profile was really nice -- it was the combination of lemon juice, chilli flakes and black pepper. I made half the recipe and it yielded 3 generous serves, so I would say the full recipe yields 6 serves, not 4. I blitzed the fennel together with the onion and garlic, and all the veggies "disappeared" into the quinoa and you can't see them, so you just feel you are eating a big bowl of quinoa with no other ingredients...! I used half red and half white quinoa, next time I will try just one colour. It needs the 10 mins of sitting time at the end.

    In calling it a quinotto, I feel it might set expectations too high. My friends who have tried my Bimby risotto all really liked the risotto, even when it was a plain risotto with only parmesan (no meat) and the friends were meat eaters. With this dish, I think it might largely appeal to those who are seeking out healthy food, and that meat eaters probably would not be satisfied with a few shreds of prosciutto and feel the dish wasn't quite a complete self-contained dish. In any case, since I'm on a very low meat diet, I made it without any meat and still enjoyed it.

    Thank you for the recipe!

  • This is a really nice dish

    Submitted by CalT on 29. November 2012 - 01:03.

    This is a really nice dish and having some crispy Pancetta (what I had in the fridge) really added to it.  I cooked a half recipe to make two generous serves and the next day reheated 2nd serve in a saucepan with a little water (with just cooked pancetta) and it tasted just as good.

  • Red fennel, chilli and cream

    Red fennel, chilli and cream cheese quisotto! Red fennel, chilli and cream cheese quisotto!
    Oh WOW - I made this on a whim for lunch, because I just happened to have most of the ingredients. LOVED IT. I used red quinoa, substituted bacon for prosciutto, a bit of cream cheese in place of mascarpone, and a sprinkle of dried dill (so really, I didn't have many of the ingredients, ha!). It was so easy, and so delicious - love the chilli kick. I'm looking forward to having some more for dinner. Thanks for sharing.

  • Super yum and great that it

    Submitted by Emily Moffatt-Livingston on 28. May 2012 - 16:02.

    Super yum and great that it was a bit different.  The advice about "it will look like it needs longer" is really true - lots of liquid when I took it out but all gone after 10 minutes in the thermoserver. 


    I brought left overs for lunch today and still yummy.
