    A nice, easy recipe. I used brown rice, added peas and reduced the water by 100g. It turned out well, even my fussy toddler ate some!

  • This makes a slightly runny

    This makes a slightly runny risotto which we prefer, you could reduce the water by 100g. this would also work well with brown rice if you don't have spelt grain. We accidentry purchased 5kg of spelt grain instead of flour and finding alternative uses tmrc_emoticons.;-) It is quite yum!
