Baked Squash Risotto

Baked Squash Risotto

We have just enjoyed this lovely baked risotto for dinner, using the squash, 1 onion, some butter and Cheddar from the Farmison Veg and Dairy box I received on Friday. It requires no stirring so perfect when you are too busy to stand by the hob. The amount below serves 2 (the kids had a cooked lunch at School/Nursery) but you can easily double everything to serve 4.

BAKED SQUASH RISOTTO

| Serves: 2  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 40 Minutes | Total Time: 50 Minutes |


Ingredients: 

  • 1 small Squash, cut into wedges (skin still on)
  • 1 TBSP Butter
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 3 rashers of smoked Bacon, chopped
  • 1 TSP Dried Thyme
  • 200g Risotto Rice
  • 600ml Vegetable Stock
  • 150g Mature Cheddar, grated

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Heat the oven to 180c. Put the squash into a roasting tin, drizzle with oil, season and put in the oven - roast for 30 minutes until tender.
  • Step 2: Meanwhile heat a casserole with some oil and fry the onion and bacon until cooked, add the thyme and risotto rice and give it a stir. Add the stock, put a lid on and place in the oven with the squash.
  • Step 3: Bake for around 20 minutes then take out of the oven with the squash. Chop the squash into small chunks and mix through the risotto. Stir in the grated cheddar and serve.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
