lemon and rocket risotto

lemon and rocket risotto

One of my favourite dishes of last year was my lemony spinach carbonara. Packed with flavour, it makes a perfect vegetarian supper.

I adore the flavour of lemon with pasta so decided to knock up this quick risotto. I used rocket because I had two packets on hand that needed to be used up urgently, but spinach would work just as well.

The pepperyness of the rocket somehow mellows as it wilts into this dish so I could have used a bit more.

I don’t have much else to say about this delicious meal other than it needs a fair bit of grated Parmesan which gives it a lovely oozy cheesy texture. It also needs a fabulous glass of chilled white wine on the side.

I loved it with the Glen Carlou unwooded Chardonnay which is such a superb food wine. A few local wine gurus raved about it here and here.
