Pea And Goats Cheese Risotto

Happy Sunday everyone,

Hope you’re all enjoying your lazy day. I’ve been playing around with some recipes today, which i’ll hopefully be able to share with you soon. I was being nostalgic about my trips to NYC, and my love of warm blueberry scones, so had a go at making then, for a first batch they haven’t turned out too bad. I’ve also been trying out some different cinnamon roll recipes, which I am THIS close to nailing.

Anyway… I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for a while now, I always forget how easy this is to make, and how delicious it is. The mix of creamy goats cheese and fresh peas is amazing. I think this is a Jamie Oliver recipe, from his website, which I am obsessed with. If I am ever in need of inspiration I always check his website out.

If you wanted to make this dish veggie just omit the bacon, and use veg stock.


Serves 4


  • 8 rashers smoked steaky bacon, chopped
  • 1 white onion, finely chopped
  • 400g risotto rice
  • 250ml white wine
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 200g peas
  • 100g goats cheese
  • 75g parmesan


In a large pan fry the bacon until its super crispy, and then transfer to a bowl lined with kitchen paper to absorb any oil.

Cook the onion on a low heat in the remaining bacon fat for about 5-10 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Add the risotto rice and cook for 3 minutes. Then pour in the white wine, making sure to gently stir all the time.

Once the wine has been absorbed, add your stock a ladle full at a time, making sure it has all been absorbed before adding more. This should take around 15-20 minutes. Check the rice is cooked, and then add the peas, bacon, and cheeses. Cook for 2 minutes or until the peas are coked and the cheese has melted.

Turn the heat off, put a lid on the pan, and allow to rest for 2 minutes. It is then ready to serve, I like a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on top and a shaving of parmesan!
