Today I love….My favourite risotto (Glamping food)

22 Jun

This is my recipe for my favourite risotto.

I love, love, love this as it is an excellent recipe as it can be adapted to be cooked when you are camping (or you may call it glamping when you are cooking this lovely meal!) as it is very easy to do on a one burner stove.

This will definitely feed the hungry hordes and keep them satisfied for hours to follow!

As a bonus, you the chef are able to grant yourself the permission to finish off the bottle of white wine with your meal……

No more stodgy boring old toasted sandwiches or canned soup for me when I go glamping next!

Chicken, Spinach and Sun Dried Tomato Risotto


Ingredients (to serve 4 people)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3-4 cups chopped fresh raw chicken or shredded cooked BBQ chicken
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • 3-4 cups Chicken Stock (preferably home made)
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves, washed
  • ½ cup sliced sun dried tomatoes
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions

1. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick saucepan. Add the onion and raw chicken (if using) and cook for 3-5 minutes until the chicken is browned and the onion has softened.
2. Add the rice and toss to coat. Cook for a further minute.
3. Add the shredded cooked chicken now (if using) together with the chicken stock and wine. Mix well. Cover and simmer very gently for 25 minutes, and continue to consume the rest of the white wine in a nice & large, chilled glass…oh, now don’t forget to stir often (ie. when you get a top up), until the rice is soft to the bite and all the liquid has been absorbed.
4. Stir in spinach, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese. Allow to stand for 2 minutes. Serve garnished with extra grated parmesan and lots of black pepper.

Cooking note: You WILL notice the difference if you use home made chicken stock as it turns out soooo much tastier!

Happy Glamping!!!

Today I love….BYO reusable coffee cup by Hookturn Industries

22 Jun

Genius!!

Yes, I have seen some of these around already as there are a few people making them but this company is Melbourne based (hence the name – Hookturn – which for those who do not know is a right hand turn made from the left hand lane in the Melbourne CBD only) and they also make the coffee cups in funky colours!

I can’t decide between the coffee colour (sensible and of course relates to the product inside!) with a white or a black lid or maybe the plain black one?? Hmmmmmmmm decisions, decisions, decisions…..

So what are you waiting for?

Let’s stop the endless stream of empty polystyrene going to our landfills….

Order and BYO your own cup today baby!!!!
