So, what are your favourite everyday recipes? Our current favourite is a chorizo and broad bean risotto – my children would eat it every day if I let them!

You will need:

1 small onion, finely diced

3 cooking chorizo sausages, cut into small chunks

200g arborio rice

750ml vegetable stock

200g frozen baby broad beans

1 tbsp oil

What to do:

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a gentle heat, add the onion and fry until it is softened, but not coloured.
  2. Add the chopped chorizo and fry until it is cooked through and browned.
  3. Add the arborio rice to the pan and stir. Cook for 1 minute, stirring every so often.
  4. Add half the stock and turn the heat down so the risotto is just bubbling gently.
  5. Keep an eye on the pan and add more stock as it is absorbed. Add more or less stock until the risotto is the consistency you like.
  6. As you add the last bit of stock, stir in the broad beans.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve with a salad or just as it is. This recipe will serve 4 smaller appetites (or 1 adult, 1 small child with a large appetite and 1 small child with a small appetite but loves this recipe!)
