Favourites 15
Total Time: 15 Minutes
Serves 2-3


  • 700g pack of frozen risotto
  • 125g of leftover gammon, cut into small dice
  • 125g of frozen petit pois or peas
  • 2 tbsp of finely chopped dill
  • 3 tbsp of full or half fat crème fraîche, optional


  1. Heat 100ml water in a large saucepan. Tip in the frozen risotto and cook gently, stirring frequently for five minutes until smooth and slightly thickened.
  2. Add the gammon, petit pois or peas and dill and cook for a further five minutes until the risotto is thick, creamy and piping hot. Add a little more water if the mixture dries out. Stir in the crème fraîche if using and serve in shallow bowls.

Cook's Tip:

Replace the water with leftover dry white wine for a slightly richer flavour and finely grate the ends of any well-flavoured hard cheese for sprinkling on top.
