Turkey Risotto with Parmesan crisp

Wondering what to do with my left over turkey this year (normally do a stir fry) I remembered a fellow foodie Blogger put up a recipe on her Blog, what I had assumed was risotto but when I checked her Bog, I had been mistaken it was a Pilaf .

It was too late (sorry Gingey Bites ) I had already started to crave that soft silky comfort food that is risotto. Looking through my store cupboard I found a half packet of arboreo rice and Parmesan cheese Yes !
The Turkey and wine I have a plenty (after all it is Christmas !) and so Turkey Risotto it was.

If you fancy making this you'll find the recipe below.

Feeds Two generously.

1 tbs butter
Glug of olive oil
3 Spring onions - chopped
1 Clove of Garlic - chopped
150g - 1 Cup Arborio rice
600ml - 1 pint of chicken stock
125ml - small wine glass of white wine
Half packet of Parmesan - keep two teaspoons back for the Parmesan crisp. 
200g Turkey

Ingredients for turkey risotto

  1. Melt the butter and oil in a non-stick saucepan.
  2. Add the spring onions and garlic and soften for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the rice and stir to coat the rice, cook gently over a low heat for 3 mins.
  4. Add the glass of wine and cook till nearly all the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Slowly add your stock bit by bit as with the wine let it almost absorb before adding more stock.
  6. When all your stock has been added and you have the consistency you want (it should look creamy with a slight bite to the rice) add your peas and turkey.
  7. Turn the heat off and stir through your Parmesan.

To make the Parmesan crisp
  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 \ 180 deg.
  2. On a flat baking sheet spoon 1 teaspoon of Parmesan into a small cooking ring and pack down to resemble flat discs.
  3. Cook in the oven for 4 minutes.
  4. Remove the discs with a plastic spatula immediately.
  5. You can shape if you want by laying the discs over a rolling pin, I left mine flat.
The Parmesan crisp
Its a good idea to pour yourself a glass of wine to drink whilst making this dish as risotto can't be left alone it needs constant attention (stirring) that said it's a very relaxing dish to cook.

That's it enjoy!
