Chorizo, Leek and Thyme Risotto


Chorizo, Leek and Thyme Risotto

I know some people really don't like making risotto's because of the endless stirring involved. But I actually find it rather therapeutic and calming after a stressful day, whether at home with the kids or at work. It always helps to have a glass of wine in hand and some good music on the ipod too!

This combination really just materialised from what I had available in the fridge - sometimes the best meals are the unplanned ones!

CHORIZO, LEEK AND THYME RISOTTO

By Beth Sachs, 23rd March 2010

Ingredients:
  • 30g butter
  • 3 leeks, washed and sliced thinly
  • 2 fresh chorizo sausages, sliced
  • A couple of sprigs of Thyme, leaves picked
  • 300g Risotto Rice
  • Glass of White Wine
  • 1 Litre Vegetable Stock
  • 50g Parmesan, grated
  • Salt and Pepper
Instructions:
  • Step 1: Heat the butter in a large pan over a medium heat, add the leeks and soften for 10 minutes. Meanwhile in a separate saucepan dry fry the fresh chorizo until crispy - set aside.
  • Step 2: Add the thyme leaves and risotto rice and stir until coated in the butter. Turn the heat up and add the wine, let it bubble away for a minute.
  • Step 3: Gradually add the stock, one ladleful at a time, continually stirring. Season and sprinkle in most of the parmesan (reserve a little for sprinkling on top) and then add in the cooked chorizo slices .

  3. I'm going to have to try this at some stage as I adore risotto and love leeks and chorizo. We usually have chicken or fish risottos, would never have thought to put chorizo in one.
