T is for Tomato Risotto

 

Last night I made a tomato risotto. The recipe came from the BBC Good Food Site and advertises itself as a quick risotto which you make in a microwave. Risotto has been a successful way of getting Freddie to try things he doesnt like so much. So I bought a punnet of cherry tomatoes and followed their instructions.These tomatoes were nothing like as sweet as the ones we bought last summer for the Pan con Tomate but we know that things in season taste best. Still this risotto tasted delicious and it is an impressively lazy way to make a risotto. And did Freddie like it? Well, this isn't something he will be begging me to make again but he did eat it and seemed to like the taste....his score was 8 out of 10.
"Even though not many children like the texture of tomatoes, I have made myself like tomatoes with this recipe... and it is worth trying if you have children ( especially children like me!!)" says Freddie.

  2. Have you tried growing tomatoes? An easy plant for a container outside the back door - freshly picked tomatoes warmed by the sun are heavenly!!!

    We have - most years Freddie has a few pots with cherry tomatoes growing. Which reminds us - we must visit the may fair at church on the weekend to get the tomato plants!
    What else would you recommend that is dead easy to grow in a small patio garden?

  4. In our house tomatoes have surpassed cheese as Ellis' snack of the moment, and cheese was scoring an 11 out of 10. In fact, tomatoes have become the new cheese. I have made tomato risotto for the little fellow, but this easy method risotto looks as if it will be a winner, plus with the inclusion of mozzarella the dish should be down the tasting hatch in a flash!
