Lightly Spiced Chorizo Risotto

This recipe serves 2 and we had a small amount left over for the toddlers lunch the next day. You could add a chicken breast to this recipe as well for extra flavour!


  • 150g Chorizo Sausage (any preferred flavour)
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, crushed
  • 1 Red Chilli
  • 1 Red Pepper, chopped
  • 150g Risotto Rice
  • 500ml Chicken Stock
  • 100g Green Beans



  • Fry the chorizo, onion, garlic and chilli in 1tsp of oil for 5 minutes until the onion is soft
  • Add the red pepper to the pan and fry for a further minute
  • Add all of the risotto rice into the pan and gradually stir in the chicken stock
  • Once the chicken stock has all been added, bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 10 minutes until most of the stock has been absorbed by the rice
  • Add the green beans and leave to simmer in the pan for a further 10 minutes
  • Check the rice is soft and the green beans are cooked, then serve
