Green pea risotto

As we move into the warmer months, my body starts craving warm, nourishing foods, and risotto’s are just perfect for this occasion. The rich, creamy flavour is one that lingers on your tastebuds, plus you can add almost any veggie to it to create a new and exciting recipe. Try roast pumpkin and cranberry, beetroot and sundried tomato, or a simple mushroom and red wine. The options are endless, just replace the green peas in this recipe with whatever you choose!
