SW recipe: Bacon & winter greens risotto

Serves 4 Ready in about 45 minutes


1.2 litres chicken or vegetable stock

200g winter greens, large stalks discarded and leaves shredded

200g purple sprouting broccoli, cut into short lengths

Low-calorie cooking spray

1 medium onion, finely chopped

250g smoked back bacon rashers, visible fat removed, cut into short strips

2 garlic doves, crushed

1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves

350g plain dried risotto rice


1 Put the stock in a large saucepan with the winter greens and broccoli. Bring to the boil, cook for 2-3 minutes, then transfer the vegetables to a bowl with a slotted spoon and set aside. Keep the remaining stock hot over a low heat.

2 Spray a large, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and bacon and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the onion is soft and the bacon is lightly golden. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for a further minute.

3 Stir in the rice, then add a ladleful of hot stock. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring, until all the stock has been absorbed. Continue adding the stock, a ladleful at a time and stirring continuously, for 20 minutes, or until all the stock has been used up and the rice is creamy and just tender.

4 Stir the winter greens and broccoli through the risotto to heat through, then season to taste and serve.
