Oven-baked leek & bacon risotto
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
A one-pot risotto you don't need to stand over for half an hour? Got to be a midweek winner
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Tip the oil into an ovenproof casserole dish. Add bacon and fry for 2 mins. Add the leeks and cook until soft, but not coloured, for about 4-5 mins. Tip in rice and cook for 1 min more. Pour over stock. Cover and place in the oven for 20 mins, stirring halfway.
- STEP 2
When rice is just tender and all liquid is absorbed, remove from oven and stir in peas. Place back in oven for 2 mins more. Remove and stir in cheese. Add zest and season.
