This is my quick and easy risotto recipe and tonight’s dinner – all made in 1 large saucepan. The kids loved it and my 18 month old got stuck in eating with her hands. This easy, cheap (only 75p per serving) and nutritious meal only takes 30 minutes to make. Instead of using expensive Arborio (proper risotto) rice, I just used normal basmati rice, and it tasted lovely. As usual with my blog recipes, I’ve analysed the recipe – see the nutritional information below. You can add any vegetable selection you have. I used carrots, pepper and sweetcorn, but you can use whatever needs using up. Broccoli, peas, spinach and courgettes would work equally well. This recipe serves 4 adults.
