Romantic Risotto

Last night I tried a new recipe and made a very romantic looking red/pink risotto. It was originally a Waitrose Valentines recipe so I can’t take credit for the idea, but It was delicious and quite healthy. 

Obviously making a risotto is a standard procedure – but for this one, get 125g of beetroot and grate half of it in to the stock to change the colour. This immediately dyes it pinky/red and it looks great! Later on when the risotto is pretty much cooked – add the rest of the beetroot, along with spinach and small chunks of salmon. 

This could be substituted for chicken, or just left totally meat-less if you prefer.

As usual sorry about my poor photos, I get far too excited and into the cooking to remember to document it! Also definitely time to buy a new camera…

A very ‘Yume’ lunch trip

Today the girls and I went to a new Sushi cafe/restaurant in Bristol called Yume (pronounced you-may). We’re doing quite well with our ‘go to new places in Bristol before we leave’ resolution and doing even better and finding any excuse not to work.

Anyway the place was amazing, so cute and nicely decorated. It was pretty busy so probably should have booked but the Sushi was worth the wait. I had Salmon Sushimi and Fish Maki with a Green Tea and some Miso soup. Basically I ordered everything. After a small mishap of getting Wasabi up my nose (v.painful) the rest of the meal was delicious.  Definitely worth a visit.
