Sweet Potato & Bacon Risotto

Sweet Potato & Bacon Risotto

with Silverbeet & Walnuts

We're big fans of baked risotto for an easy family dinner. Just pop it in the oven and walk away – the flavours will develop and the rice will soak up the liquid to become soft and creamy. This version pairs sweet potato and bacon with two of our trusty seasonings, and is finished with chopped walnuts for a subtle nuttiness and crunch. Perfection!

Little cooks: Lend a hand by tossing the sweet potato with the olive oil and seasonings!

Little cooks: Don your goggles and have a go at peeling off the onion's outer layer!

• In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. • Cook diced bacon and onion, breaking up bacon with a spoon, until browned, 4-5 minutes. • Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add the water, Nan's special seasoning, arborio rice and silverbeet. Bring to the boil, then remove pan from heat.

• Transfer risotto mixture to a baking dish. Cover tightly with foil . Bake until liquid is absorbed and rice is 'al dente', 24-28 minutes. • Meanwhile, roughly chop walnuts.

TIP: 'Al dente' rice is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.

• When risotto is ready, stir in the butter and shaved Parmesan cheese. • Gently stir in roasted sweet potato and a pinch of chilli flakes (if using). Season to taste.

TIP: Stir through a splash of water to loosen the risotto, if needed.
