  • Yummy healthy dish Based on other reviews I used...

    Submitted by kkap on 3. February 2017 - 12:52.

    Yummy healthy dish! Based on other reviews, I used only 350g water which was great, but it did thicken and dry up a bit on standing so next time I'll try 370g. I might double the recipe and add the spinach to the varoma in the last 5 min of cooking as I'd love to freeze some. Thanks so much for such a delicious and easy recipe Smile

    Submitted by Melonnade on 26. June 2016 - 20:02.

    Very tasty 

    I added half the water at first to watch, as quite a few people noted it's too wet and soup like, then added more at step 4. I ended up using about 350g water. We like risotto thicker though. I also switched out the measuring cup to the basket on top to let steam rise through. i came across this recipe as I ran out of arborio rice! so glad I did. Thanks for the recipe

    Great flavours, but really runny.  Bellebabes could you please check the ingredients to see if something is not right?

  • I've made this several times

    Submitted by Mrs Gregg on 21. September 2015 - 17:45.

    I've made this several times now and each time I have to let it cook for much longer than 15 mins for all the liquid to be absorbed. Can anyone help me? Where am I going wrong? I want a texture as close to rissotto as possible but it's just not happening after 15 minutes. It looks like a soup at that stage! I would really appreciate any advice.

    Delicious and healthy. My only complaint is there wasnt enough tmrc_emoticons.;) Next time I might try cooking it all in the thermomix bowl except for the spinach, I would instead add the spinach to the bottom of the thermoserver before pouring the risotto over the top, therefore allowing me to add more ingredients to the recipe.

    Submitted by waffles on 8. August 2015 - 19:35.

    This is (surprisingly) delicious and easy to make!  Easier than risotto and perfect in texture, flavour and nutrition.  I used mixed Asian mushrooms, added shallots in the last minute of cooking, and didn't add spinach/kale as I didn't have any.  Really nice served with stir-fried garlic prawns.  Thanks for the recipe.

  • This is absolutely delicious!

    Submitted by Mrs Gregg on 15. July 2015 - 13:39.

    This is absolutely delicious! I seem to have to cook it for a very long time though, to get all the liquid absorbed. I tried only adding 300 grams of water this time but there was still so much liquid at the end of the 15 minutes. I blitz all the mushrooms  to hide them from my kids.... Could that be the issue? Just wondering what sort of texture everyone else is ending up with? I want a risotto style, is that what everyone else is getting after 15 minutes? This is such a lovely tasting meal and I'd love to get it right!

  • Very delicious! It does

    Submitted by michr on 23. January 2015 - 18:16.

    Very delicious! It does require a bit of salt at the end, so I add in 1TB of veggie stock paste for more flavour.

    I think asparagus and tomatoes would go nicely too, perhaps in the last couple of minutes of cooking when you add the spinach.

    I have made this twice now for a healthy lunch.

    First time ever that i used quinoa, so tasty so i will definately use this recipe again. Had 200g mushrooms, just the normal cheap mushroom, and added 1 zuchini and only had 65g spinach leaves, still turned out delicious.

    Delicious! Tastes just like a risotto but more healthy. I used some dried shitake mushrooms for more flavour and at the end added an extra handful of kale to bulk it up. Will cook this regularly!
