Creamy Pea & Gammon Risotto

Serves 2-3
Total Time
15 Minutes
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
Step 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.

Step 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.
