Broccoli, Pea and Mint Risotto

Vegetable risotto with breaded cod

I am not really a huge fan of peas or mint but recently I wanted to use up some breaded fish fillets but was not feeling chips so opted to do a risotto. The idea of also having a meal full of greenery was pretty appealing as the remains of a chest infection has lingered […]

Rustico, Wakefield
