Recipe: Oven-baked vegetable risotto
Posted in full at: http://ift.tt/1JtNvkk at August 31, 2015 at 10:27PM

Welcome back to Tuesday’s recipe series, where each week I share a new recipe which you can download for free. When there is a collection on the blog, I will be showing you how to use them to create weekly, fortnightly and monthly meal plans.

I have always loved a good risotto, but could never be bothered standing over the stove stirring it for 40 minutes. Ain’t no-one got time for that, especially when you’ve got a hungry toddler at your toes in the kitchen! So now I only do risottos 2 ways - in the oven or in the microwave. Both methods do not require constant stirring, so it becomes one of those quick ‘leave-and-forget'  meals that I totally love! The recipe I’ve written today is an oven-baked version, but getting yourself a great microwave dish too is a really worthwhile investment.

The other great thing about risotto is that once you know how to make a delicious flavour base, you can mix and match different vegetable combinations to create unique dishes. So you can easily have a different risotto feature every week in your meal planning. If you were doing a monthly meal plan like I do (I can’t wait to show you exactly how I do mine!), and wanted to include a different weekly risotto, it might look like this:

Week 1 : Chicken, mushroom and spinach

Week 2: Oven-baked vegetable

Week 3: Bacon, leek and goat’s cheese

Week 4: Asparagus, pea and mint

And bam! You’ve got 4 meals of the month sorted, all with pretty much the same method but different flavours. Meal planning and cooking shouldn’t be over-complicated. It’s all about finding a good recipe and tweaking it to suit your personal tastes. I hope you enjoy this risotto recipe as much as we do.
