chopo risotto


Another “accidental” risotto, which came about after seeing some lovely chopo mushrooms at the market yesterday. And then the guy made me an offer I couldn’t refuse (just before closing time on Saturday is a good time to hit the market). These chopos were cultivated, which don’t have the same deep flavour as wild ones, but still a nice change from regular white mushrooms. They were also small enough that I just cooked them whole. And thus a new (for me) risotto was born.

chicken pesto risotto with portobellos


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a risotto recipe (or for that matter – anything!).

spinach, langostine & chorizo criollo risotto

Yep, another risotto. This one with fresh baby spinach leaves stirred in at the end – it’ll look like a lot of spinach at first but it wilts down a lot. Also very meaty with lots of chorizo criollo, which adds a lovely texture and flavour and goes very well with the langostines. Add some ground hot chilis to spice it up.

Ingredients & instructions below the links.
