Hi everyone,

Here's a nice simple risotto I made with red lentils quinoa chilli sweet red pepper onion garlic chestnut mushrooms baby tomatoes and peas. I cooked the lentils and quinoa, in another pan I cooked the onions garlic chilli peppers mushrooms ginger added cooked peas lentils and quinoa with spices and a little gram flour to thicken.

What I like about quinoa is it has little curly tails that show its cooked,

This is gluten free plant based and low carb so ticks lots of boxes with out compromise. 😊

This is the recipe I saw that inspired me I just wanted peas with mine:

Hi Jerry

Your Risotto looks really scrumptious! So colourful and I bet it was full of flavour. Yum!

This looks really tasty, i'll definitely give it a go some day :) I would probably ruin it and add potatoes, but a meal never looks complete to me without some carbs!

What a good idea. I wouldn’t have thought to do risotto with quinoa. I hope you enjoyed it Jerry. Your meals look delicious. πŸ˜‹

Thank you Cooper, quinoa is a complete food and a carb but because it contains plenty of fibre it’s net carb count is considered low. It also contains lots of calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, protein and it’s gluten free. 😊

Looks delicious πŸ˜‹ yours looks better than the original ... I love peas 😊
