    This morning in my vegetable’s garden I found fresh spinach and I can’t resist: let’s make Risotto!
    4 people
    320 g of  rice (Vialone Nano)
    280 g of fresh spinach
    100 g sweet gorgonzola cheese
    1 shallot
    1/2 cup white wine
    1 lt vegetable’s broth
    4 slices of bacon
    1 fresh spring onion
    extra virgin olive oil
    In a pan fry the shallots with the olive oil and add the rice and cook until crackling! In another pan, with virgin olive oil,  cook the spinach, with fresh onion cut into slices, adding a little water and a half cup of white wine, salt and pepper. After 5-6 minutes, blend up to create a cream. Go back to the toasted rice and when it takes the heat add the spinach’s cream and add vegetable broth to help to cook. In the meanwhile, fry in hot olive oil few leaves of spinach, and grill the slices of bacon ( I rolled them in a metal cone to make them stay in shape) and cut into strips the tops the fresh onion. We are ready to whisk our risotto with gorgonzola into pieces and a generous tablespoon of butter. Serve it with fried spinach leaves, bacon crispy and the onion raw

    riso basmati and co 008

    … I had some basmati rice left (I use it often served with vegetables in a pan), so invented this  ”recovery” pie:
    with any cup you have at home create a form of basmati rice. Cut bacon into thin slices and grill in  the oven  until crispy. Boil the asparagus (please not too much, otherwise they will be too mushy!), and season with oil, salt and lemon juice. Cut dried tomatoes into thin strips and moisten with white wine, then seasoned with olive oil and salt. Soak two slices of brie cheese in the oven and assembled the cake.
    It ’came cute and so good!
