    I didn't want mushy cauli so ommitted steps one to four. Used leek instead of onion. Deleted step 8 as didn't add cream. Chopped cauli into small florets and added at step 9. Result was still a creamy well cooked rissotto with a bit of texture. Will make again.

    This is really delicious, thank you for posting it. I'd add about 3 or 4 times the baby spinach at the end if I did it again. Love the smokeyness of the bacon through it. Great winter dish.

    Definitely a winner! I used tasty cheese as I always do, and bacon straight from the freezer! I also added 2 big handfuls of spinach at the frozen peas step.
