You’d be so proud of me! It was going to be a weird lobster pate risotto (Drew’s brother gave him a bunch of intriguing food products – the white grits was one of them – and another was a tin of lobster pate), but the pate was just a little too weird for both of us. Even the cats didn’t want it! So the risotto became a clearing-the-fridge risotto instead. I used this recipe as the base and then tossed in frozen peas and frozen corn at the end along with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, dried thyme, and parmesan cheese and then garnished with avocado and cilantro.
I’ve never been one to just throw stuff in a pan – I always follow a recipe – but this one seems to have turned out pretty darn well!
