I’ve tried and tried, but I just can’t make this risotto look appealing. It’s frustrating because it’s actually one of the nicest things I’ve eaten in a long time. There’s something so wintery and warming about it without it being terribly bad for you or yawningly bland.
I originally found the recipe in the 4Blades magazine. I was in need of some more Thermomix recipes and after doing a quick Google search for ‘Thermomix recipes’ I stumbled across the 4Blades magazine. It’s a magazine that’s contributed to by various different Thermomix recipe bloggers and they release an issue every month. Needing to further justify my unnecessary expensive purchase, I subscribed to the magazine for £2.99 a month. So far I’ve had two or three recipes out of each one I’ve received – definitely worth the investment.
I haven’t really changed the original recipe very much because it was bloody delicious to begin with. I’ll try and link to it if I can find it online.
- 1 onion, peeled and quartered
- 1 bunch of spring onions
- 1 tablespoon of garlic paste
- 1 red chilli
- Bunch of fresh coriander
- Bunch of fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon of red curry paste
- 20g of olive oil
- 100g carrot cut up into large pieces
- 1 red pepped quartered
- 400g of coconut milk
- 400g boiling water
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 300g risotto rice
- 500g raw king prawns
- Put the onion, spring onions, garlic paste, red chilli, coriander, parsley and oil into the bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 5. Scrape down the sides when it’s finished.
- Add the curry paste and cook for 5 mins/Varoma/speed 1/MC off.
- Add the red pepper and carrot. Chop for 3 sec/speed 8. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- Add 100g of the coconut milk. Cook 2 mins/100°c/speed 1/reverse.
- Add the remaining coconut milk, risotto rice, water, stock cube, salt and pepper to taste. Mix together 2 sec/speed 3/reverse.
- Cook for 16 mins/100°c/speed 1/reverse/MC off. Put the simmering basket on the top to prevent the mixture from splattering.
- Add the prawns and use a spatula to mix together. Cook for 2 mins/100°c/speed 1/reverse.
- Let it sit for a couple of minutes before serving. It’ll be hotter than the sun!
I really do promise you that this taste 100% better than it looks. The above method is for the Thermomix but I’m sure it’ll be easily adaptable to do it on the hob. You’d just have to chop everything by hand and stir it every now and again when it’s cooking.
If you try it let me know.
Happy healthy cooking.
