Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and sizzle the chorizo for 1 min until some of the oil starts to come out. Add the onion and cook for 5 mins until soft, then add the risotto rice and cook for 1 min. Splash in the vinegar, then add the tomatoes and stir well.

  2. Gradually add the hot stock, a ladleful at a time – stir the rice until the stock is absorbed, then add the next ladleful. With the last ladleful of stock, add the peas and keep stirring until the rice is cooked. Turn off the heat and stir through the Parmesan and parsley, if using. Serve straight from the pan, with extra Parmesan, if you like.

Brilliant, never made risotto before and it was perfect. I added garlic, paprika and basil, salt, pepper and chilli because I like a lot of flavour. Very simple but tasty meal.

Yummy recipe and so easy! I added garlic, a little cayenne pepper, dried mixed herbs and smoked paprika for added flavour. I also added some spinach at the end of cooking instead of the peas.

Was pleased with the flavour of this risotto, added broad beans as had them in the fridge, the following night we made the left overs into Arancini which we put a centre of goats cheese in the middle of - amazing!

First time cooking risotto, and it came out perfectly tasty! 5/5 both for taste and ease of cooking.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So tasty, and all plates cleaned! Fussy daughter even used her finger to get last bit of sauce off plate, what a result! Added a ball of mozzarella only because it was slightly out of date and would have gone in the bin. This ones a keeper.

Wonderfully easy and quick meal to prepare and cook. I added extra peas and some green beans that were in the bottom of the fridge to pack it out a little. A super quick supper!

Very easy, very tasty and quick store cupboard recipe. We didn't have quite enough chorizo so added some prawns to make up. The variations of ingredients that could be added are probably endless!! Sun dried tomatoes, peppers, olives............. This one definitely goes onto the regular family meal list.
