Fennel and Lemon Risotto in the Thermomix

I have a Thermomix and I LOVE it! Trying to stick to WW has been challenging though as there are so many yummy and slightly naughty things you can make so easily. I have decided to rejuvenate this blog and start posting my Thermi versions of WW recipes!

Fennel and Lemon Risotto - Serves 6
9 ProPoints per serve

2 leeks cut into chunks
2 cloves of garlic
10g Olive oil
Rind of 1 lemon
400g Arborio rice
2 small fennel bulbs (mine were about 120g each once sliced up)
2-3 tbs vegetable stock concentrate(from EDC)
aprox 1L of water
180g frozen peas
60g parmesan cheese
Rocket leaves to serve

Grate lemon rind 10 seconds/Speed 7 scrape down and repeat if necessary. Remove from bowl and set aside.

Chop leeks and garlic 3 seconds/speed 7

Sauté leek and garlic 3 min/Varoma/Speed 1

Insert butterfly. Add rice and saute 2 min/100C/Reverse/Speed 1

Add stock, sliced fennel, lemon rind and water and cook 16 min/100C/Reverse/Speed 1

Remove butterfly and pour into Thermoserver, add parmesan and peas and stir through. I also added the juice of half a lemon as I like my lemon! Let it sit for at least 5 minutes to warm up the peas and finish cooking.

Serve with rocket
