Garlic Press
Large Oven-Proof Pan


Get Started

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a full kettle.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.

Fry the Chorizo

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, wide-bottomed ovenproof pan on medium-high heat. TIP: If you don't have an ovenproof pan, use a normal saucepan and transfer to an ovenproof dish later.

Once hot, add the diced chorizo and onion. Fry until the onion starts to soften, 5-6 mins. 

Add the garlic and fry for 1 min more.

Risotto Time

Add the risotto rice to the pan, stir and cook until the edges of the rice are translucent, 1-2 mins.

Stir in the boiled water for the risotto (see pantry for amount) and chicken stock paste.

Bring back up to the boil, then pop a lid on the pan (or cover with foil).

Time to Bake

Bake your risotto on the middle shelf of your oven until the rice is cooked and the water has been absorbed, 25-30 mins.

Cheese and Peas Please

When the risotto has finished cooking, remove it from the oven.

Stir through the butter (see pantry for amount), peas and half the hard Italian style cheese. TIP: Add a splash of water to loosen the risotto if needed.

Serve Up

Share the chorizo and pea risotto between your serving bowls.

Sprinkle over the remaining hard Italian style cheese to finish.
