Chorizo & pea risotto


1 tbsp oil
200g chorizo , peeled and chopped
300g arborio risotto rice
2 tbsp vinegar (white wine vinegar if you have it)
1.2l chicken stock (fresh is best), heated until simmering
200g frozen peas
60g parmesan , finely grated, plus extra to serve

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, tip in the chorizo and fry until it is crisp and all the oil has been released. Remove a quarter of the chorizo with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Tip the rice into the pan, stir to coat it in the oil and toast for a min or so, then pour in the vinegar. Once the vinegar has evaporated, add a ladleful of the stock, stir then, once absorbed, add a bit more. Continue doing this for about 20 mins until most of the stock has been absorbed and the rice has swollen but still has a slight bite.

Tip in the peas, parmesan and the remaining stock. Give everything a good stir. Once the cheese has melted, season with black pepper, then divide between bowls, topping each portion with the remaining crisp chorizo and extra grated parmesan.

small head of broccoli broken into small florets
200g cooking chorizo diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp fennel seed
200g low-fat cream cheese with garlic & herbs
parmesan and rocket leaves, to serve

Cook the penne following pack instructions, adding the broccoli for the final 3 mins. When cooked, drain, reserving a splash of the cooking water.

Pancackes with berries


50g plain flour
small pinch salt
1 medium free-range egg
150ml milk
2 tsp vegetable oil or melted butter, plus extra for frying

For the topping
100g white chocolate, broken into small pieces
200g mixed frozen berries
Recipe tips

Put the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, pour in the milk and crack in the egg. Using a whisk, gradually incorporate the flour into the wet ingredients until you have a smooth batter. Add the vegetable oil and mix thoroughly.

Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add a little oil and use kitchen paper to smear it all over the base of the pan. Add a small ladleful of batter and swirl it around the pan to create a thin, even layer. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the batter is a little darker and set in the middle (to check, lift the edge of the pancake and check the underside is lightly golden-brown). Flip it over and cook the other side for 30-40 seconds. Transfer to a warm plate and cover with a clean tea towel to keep it warm. Cook the remaining batter in the same way to make 3 more pancakes.

For the topping, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Alternatively, melt the chocolate in short bursts in a microwave.

Put a pancake on each serving plate and divide the frozen berries between them. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the top and serve immediately. The heat of the pancakes and chocolate will thaw the berries quickly, but you want them to be chilled (it’s the contrast of temperatures that makes it so special).
