Re: Tonight's dinner?

Today Chicken curry... Tomorrow vegetable fondue... raw or cookied (but crunchy) vegetable instead of bread. Much helathier than traditional version I think. I have to try it.
On Wednesday lemon chicken with grilled vegetables or creamy soup, leek or potato + celeriac with rosted pumpkin seeds. I like a bit of pumpkin oil on it too. It goes very well together.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

I cheated... my fresh spinach soup came out far too thin today so I threw in a packet of mashed potato. It's perfect now.

Hell, if there's a Thai chocolate cake recipe out there I'll give it a bash. And sadly, no... no birdseye chillis...

Minted pea and leek risotto with soft poached egg.


Ooh... any chance I could have the recipe please? (I can poach the egg...)


I can make risotto but the "Minted pea" bit is intriguing...


Thank you in advance.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

As promised....

Serves 4

2tbsp olive oil
2 leeks, finely chopped
350g arborio rice
170 ml dry white wine
300g frozen petit pois
1 handful mint leaves, chopped
1 handful basil leaves, torn into small pieces, plus extra to serve
1.5 litres hot veg stock
100g Parmesan, finely grated, plus extra to serve
4 eggs
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat the oil over a medium heat. Add leeks, cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 5 mins, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the rice and stir for 2 minutes. Add the wine and bring to the boil over a medium high heat, reduce the heat to medium level, cook until absorbed.

Meanwhile, steam the peas for 3 mins, transfer to a blender with the mint and basil, and 100mls of the stock. Purée and set aside.

Add a ladleful of stock to the rice, stirring until absorbed, then another ladleful etc until all absorbed (around 25 mins). Remove from the heat and stir in the pea purée and Parmesan.

Bring a large sauté pan of water to the boil, reduce heat to low. Break eggs into a cup, one at a time, and slip the eggs out of the cup into the gently simmering water. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Occasionally spoon water over the eggs.

While the eggs are cooking, warm through the risotto, season with salt and pepper, divide into 4 shallow bowls and top each with an egg. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan and basil leaves.
Serve immediately.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Yum. Thanking you! Am hoping Coleman's mint sauce might be a good sub... sorry if that's too philistine-y for words. I have everything else and now I really want risotto...
