Pepperoni and Green Bean Risotto

Pepperoni and Green Bean Risotto

Posted 2018-07-04 by finyfollow

Risotto is quite time consuming as you virtually have to stir much of the time, however this recipe was well worth it!

It uses [link http://recipeyum.com.au/economical-soup-with-four-different-uses/ chicken soup] which I always have in the freezer, though you could use bought one.

I made it with a parsley and tomato salad as I have so much parsley growing in the garden - I also have green beans which I used in the risotto.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
About 100 g green beans
3½ cups [link http://recipeyum.com.au/12-hour-slow-cooker-chicken-soup/ chicken stock]
1 tbsp tomato paste
10 g butter
1 tbsp olive oil
½ large onion
½ medium red capsicum, chopped finely
1 cup arborio rice
100 g pepperoni, sliced thinly
About 25 g green olives

Method
  • Boil or microwave the beans slightly, until they are slightly softened only.

  • Bring the stock and tomato paste to a boil, turn to low and leave covered while you prepare the risotto.

  • Heat some oil in a pan and add the butter. Cook the chopped onion and capsicum, stirring until the onion is soft - about 5 minutes.

  • Add the rice, and stir to coat in the oil.


  • Add in one cup of the hot stock and cook, stirring over a low heat.


  • Once this is absorbed keep adding in cup fulls until all the liquid is absorbed. Take care that it does not stick as each lot of liquid is absorbed.


  • The total cooking time for this will be about 30 minutes, and the rice should be tender by then.

  • Turn off the heat, and add the beans, pepperoni and olives, and stir till it is all mixed.


  • For the salad, just chop up the parsley very fine, and add chopped finely cut tomatoes.

  • I added olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pumpkin seeds, as well as some home made beetroot.


  • Serve, and it can be reheated in the microwave for several more days.
