risi e bisi




I only recently started experimenting with risotto and until now i have stayed with a classic white wine and mushrooms risotto, which is a really good combination, but not very spring-like. So i decided to try a spring-risotto from my risotto cook book and ended up with a delicious risi e bisi - risotto with peas, bacon and fennel (don't you find that name excellent?) Elinor got her own variation: mashed potatoes, peas and fennel with garlic! I have thought of returning to the fall risotto though, since the temperature here in copenhagen has dropped to something very fall like

To make risi e bisi you need: risotto rice, vegetable stock, peas, fennel, pancetta or bacon, onions, parsley, butter and parmigiana. ▶ Fry onions + bacon + fennel ▶ Add peas and some stock ▶ add rice and stir ▶ add stock as it is absorbed ▶ take off the heat and add parsley, butter and parmigiana and leave for a few minutes. Enjoy! -uh and the bright green stuff on the side is boiled peas + garlic + olive oil!

Katrine: Ja, man kan få meget tid til at gå med literal videos på you tube!
Stuffedmice: I know what you mean about consumption! its so easy to focus on "things" and i do need a good amount of delicious coffee and beautiful things, but you have to mix it up! don't be one sided and always try to add some value - something surprising! (I love the player as well - its important to have a neat player :))
Mus: She is a cute cutie!

I love Risi&Bisi, it reminds me when I was a child aand my mum used to cook it! Maybe my favourite receipe after Rice with zafran (I can send you the italian receipe if you want).

Have a nice weekend!
