Chicken & Prawn Risotto

Tonight I made a Risotto for the family. Making my own stock out of 4 cups water, salt, pepper, diced capsicum, sliced carrot, zucchini, kale & tomato. Once cooked through I used a stick mixer to purée the stock and then added two more cups of boiled water. 
Use the stock to cook your aborio rice while browning diced chicken breast in a fry pan. Remove from heat once browned. 
Keep adding the stock until the rice is cooked & then combine the chicken & 2 cups of prawns.

Heat through & serve.
Easy, yummy, perfect for vegetable haters & a perfect end to the awfully rainy day!

24 Days of Salad: Mediterranean Mix

Tonight’s salad consisted of a few handfuls of mixed green salad leaves & some marinated vegetables.

I was cooking the family some seafood so I added a few prawns to my mix of feta, olives, semi dried tomatoes & anchovies.

This was a really quick & easy dish to throw together & was a fresh, fuller meal than previous salad dishes. 
Salads are so versitile and easy, I’m looking forward to trialling some new ‘salad’ dishes.
