  • broccoli risotto

    Broccoli risotto

    Our broccoli risotto with ricotta and peas is a healthy and comforting mid-week meal that the whole family will love. This cheesy, creamy dish is a great way to sneak more veg into meals for kids – it tastes so good that they won’t even notice they’re eating greens! This broccoli risotto is made with a three grain risotto mix to add extra fibre, which is great for your digestive system, and makes it a really satisfying meal. Ricotta, an Italian fresh cheese, is lower in fat than other cheeses, but adds a richness and creaminess, as well as the much loved cheesy flavour. Risotto is traditionally a meal that requires lots of patience, slow cooking, and constant attention, but our version is so easy, perfect for a busy week-nights. Our broccoli risotto with ricotta and peas is just the thing to warm you up on a winter evening. It's cheap and requires minimal effort but gives great results.

  • FODMAP diet recipes

    FODMAP buckwheat risotto with macadamia cream

    Fancy a hearty risotto but following the FODMAP diet? Look no further than this delicious recipe. Thanks to cook book author Emma Hatcher, who specialises in FODMAP-friendly recipes, following the diet plan couldn't be easier, or more tasty! Emma says: 'Mushroom risotto used to be one of my favourites and the aubergines here are a great substitute that provide a very similar texture. Warming and satisfying, this is real 'bowl' food. The buckwheat groats cook in a third of the time of a standard rice risotto, so that you can get more time away from the stove. Plus, its creaminess comes from the macadamia nuts, instead of the butter, offering a different texture and a lovely richness.'

  • Tomato risotto

    Tomato risotto

    Make this budget tomato risotto if you're strapped for cash like our mummy blogger Anneliese, who says: 'This tomato risotto is my children's favourite meal. My four year old son is rather fussy when it comes to food but always scrapes his plate clean when I serve up this favoured dish! I used to make risotto with expensive risotto rice, believing that there was no alternative. However, I have since discovered that basic white rice works just as well, thanks to Jack Monroe! It really has to be tried to be believed. I now use affordable basic white rice in place of risotto rice and no one can tell the difference; it works perfectly.'
