Martha Mondays: Leek, Bacon and Pea Risotto

Today’s project was leek, bacon and pea risotto, chosen by Sassy Suppers.  I liked this a lot, even though I usually don’t care for leeks.  It had just the right balance of flavors. Adding that spurt of lemon juice at the end is genius I think. It was creamy and flavorful and just hit the spot. Two thumbs up on this one, even if I find all the stirring a bit tedious! I’ll be interested to hear if everyone else enjoyed it as well.

  1. The stirring is a bit tedious, but I thought it was worth it. I liked this a lot. I didn’t use as much liquid as suggested and cooked the peas for a bit longer than suggested but this was a winner. I have just eaten the cold leftovers (I made enough for four even though there are only three in our house) for lunch and it was yummy!

    I’m so glad you liked it. I really did too. We are trying out the risotto cakes linked to the recipe tonight.
