Recipe's preparation

    Lemon, Leek & Zucchini Risotto
  1. Grate parmesan cheese 5 secs speed 10. Set aside.

    Place lemon zest, garlic, thyme & parsley into TM bowl & chop 10 secs speed 10. Add leek & chop for 3 secs speed 5 you may need to stir with a spatula.

    Scrape down the sides of the bowl with spatula.

    Add butter & oil & cook for 3 mins, VaromaCounter-clockwise operation speed 1.

    Add rice & wine & cook for 2 mins,Counter-clockwise operation 100 degrees speed 1.5, with out the MC.

    Add the zuchinni, stock paste & water, cook for 13 mins, 100 degrees Counter-clockwise operation speed 1.5 with the MC on.

    The risotto will still be quite liquidy, pour it into a thermoserver that has the spinach in it, add the lemon juice to taste & stir through some of the cheese & cracked pepper. Allow to sit in the Thermoserver for at least 5- 10 mins. It will continue cooking while it sits, so if you prefer more of a bite to your risotto get it out sooner than later. Serve with a bit more cheese.

Tip

Frozen peas are great to add in palce of some of the zuchinni add in the last 5 mins of cooking time.

A great dish to serve with grilled lamb.

    Submitted by Gianesthermo on 27. June 2016 - 19:17.

    This is my go to risotto recipe. Tastes beautiful, and is more than enough for my hungry family of five. I've made this recipe a few times with and without leek (with onion) in its place. I've also added peas and mushrooms in the past. All variations were delish!

    Submitted by Mttran on 21. June 2016 - 19:23.

    Just made this - tastes awesome. Made it to go with some pan-fried pink snapper. Didn't realised till last minute that I'd ran out of veggie stock so chucked in an Oxo chicken stock cube and some sea salt and still turned out tasty. My four year old and toddler are gobbling it down now. My four year old who can be quite fussy declared, "I love risotto."

    Yummo!! (Halved the recipe)

    Hi, great recipe! perfect consistancy

    i wanted to feed hubby and wife + a toddler so i halved the recipe ... no leftovers so in that respect perfect, i good sized plate each and a little for bubs.

    i didnt realse the way i cut up the zucchini would be the end result i thought it would chop it all - still turned out fine a bit big for bubs (have to hide vegies!) i used 200gm aborio rice and 400ml of chicken stock (were meateaters so the chicken stock 'meatied' it up for us) delicious, if you are a meateater and like the idea of no having meat in a dish (we try to 1-2 times a week) i recommend adding chick stock in place of water for more flavour

    i usd onion, not leek, used 2 garlic cloves (although recipe was halved) and cheese - i put aside the recommended amount but only used 2 tablespoons

    Another last thing - i halved so thi might be why but got no soupy, needing to rest bit at the end .. it was ready to go as soon as it stopped, perfect consistency ..!!!

    Have made this twice now and it has been beautiful each time!

    First time I made it exactly as the recipe states and it was yummy, but hubby wanted a little less lemon and some meat.  So next time I put half the lemon rind and lemon juice in, and added a chicken breast (diced) at the same time as the stock, and it was even better.

    Thank you for a yummy recipe, this one is saved to my favourites!

  • I am getting my thermomix

    Submitted by Turtlepark on 23. December 2014 - 23:08.

    I am getting my thermomix tomorrow and very excited to try this recipe. I have a couple of rather dim questions that I need answered... 1. when you add the oil and butter, it says Varoma and then an arrow in a circle. Does that mean that the oil and butter go into the varoma? That doesn't make sense to me. 2. When it says with and without the MC, why does it matter? 3. I may not have the thermoserver. How can I finish this off without it?

    Thank you so much for any advice!

    A delightful dish. I used 2 zucchini and because I had a red capsicum I chargrilled , peeled and chopped it before adding it to the risotto at the end. I always cut down on butter and oil but loved the lemon flavour. I also crisped up some pruchuittto  to put on top for added zing and saltiness. I used rocket as I had it in the fridge. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you. Gentle stir setting tmrc_emoticons.)

    Thanks for your feedback Smitty. It's great to adapt the recipe to taste. Yes the extra cheese is to sprinkle on top to taste, as in our house my son loves cheese!! You will notice the recipe says to stir in some of the cheese, to allow for personal tastes. I am the one that loves butter at our place, but you can cetainly put in less or leave it out completely tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Very yummy, buttery risotto,

    Submitted by Smitty on 15. May 2014 - 19:21.

    Very yummy, buttery risotto, but recipe asks for an extraordinary amount of Parmesan. I only used approximately 80g Parmesan and next time I will reduce the butter to 30g. As I didn't have any baby spinach in the fridge, I discovered that it was still very yummy without.
