Some people think that Risotto is really hard to make, but most of the effort is the content stirring. It’s not a dish you can rush, you
It’s not a dish you can rush, you ned to take your time. But, it’s perfect to do when you have next to nothing in!
But, it’s perfect to do when you have next to nothing in! You can throw almost anything in, and as long as you have lemon, Parmesan and Risotto rice – it’ll turn out pretty well.
This is one of the first Tomato based Risotto’s we’ve ever made & I’m still shocked by how much the tomato comes through without the use of paste or puree.
I recommend you use Italian chopped tomatoes, we’ve experimented with many, and they always seem to have the right balance in acidity & thicker sauces.
If you don’t like tomato based risotto why not try our Low Syn Chicken and Mushroom Risotto instead?
You can add any speed that you like to this Low Syn Tomato, Bacon, Sausage & Mushroom Risotto, you don’t have to use Broccoli. It would work well with Asparagus, aubergine, courgettes, baby corn – anything you like!
You can also control the heat – just add more or less Chilli!
Lastly, as ever with Slimming World Extra Easy, make sure to have plenty of speed with it!
Salads go well, perhaps a few rocket leaves, peashoots & lambs lettuce with some Balsamic drizzled over the top, my idea of heaven!
What sausage should I use in this Low Syn Tomato, Bacon, Sausage & Mushroom Risotto?
We’ve been on the hunt for a new meat supplier for a while now. As you know, we used to use Musclefood, but not anymore! We’ve found a company that not only has a better moral compass but also has some of the best quality meat we've seen in a long time.
You can grab their sausages in a few of our hamper deals, you really should give them a try.
We even have a special Sausage selection box! Their full-size sausages come in at 1 Syn each, and Chipolatas at 0.5 Syns each.
The chipolatas are PERFECT for this Low Syn Tomato, Bacon, Sausage & Mushroom Risotto recipe.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Low Syn Tomato, Bacon, Sausage & Mushroom Risotto recipe.
