TEX MEX RISOTTO with bonus TEX MEX SPICE MIX

TEX MEX RISOTTO with bonus TEX MEX SPICE MIX

 Here’s a tasty one for you Galley Peeps.  It was inspired by one of our home delivery plant-based meals.  A simple risotto with a Tex Mex flair. You’ve probably noticed that I’m big on making my own spice mixes.  For one thing, in my tiny galley there’s precious little space for a gazillion spice containers.  And we do love our Mexican type foods so this Tex Mex combo has become a favourite.  We love a little heat too so I…

ITALIAN SAUSAGE and TOMATO RISOTTO

ITALIAN SAUSAGE and TOMATO RISOTTO

Risotto is one of my all time favourite dishes for so many reasons. It’s the ultimate comfort food…easy, creamy and flavourful. The base ingredients keep so well in our tiny galley…rice, garlic, onion, chicken broth and parm. Easy to throw together…gather the ingredients and 20 minutes later…pure Italian heaven! With a few additions the basic recipe can be transformed into a multitude of options. This next recipe inspired by Smitten Kitchen by way of Martha Stewart seemed like quite a…

SWEET CORN RISOTTO

SWEET CORN RISOTTO

As far as fresh produce this has to be my favourite time of year. so many fruits and vegetables are in season and available locally. The gifts of tomatoes from our neighbour’s community garden keep flowing in with gift bags of them left on our doorstep. My little basil plant continues to thrive onboard Lately we were given several ears of local corn. And I was craving risotto. So besides the corn I had some arborio rice, garlic and onion,…

BRUSSELS SPROUTS RISOTTO

BRUSSELS SPROUTS RISOTTO

This may seems a bid odd but I had a dozen Brussels sprouts, and about 6 large mushrooms and not a whole lot else in our land galley and we were leaving for a week on our little adventure. Plus with all the excitement of preparing and packing last week I had neither the interest nor energy to put a lot of thought and effort into supper. Risotto is always a great go-to meal. If you keep some chicken broth…

LEMON THYME STEEL CUT OATS ‘RISOTTO’

LEMON THYME STEEL CUT OATS ‘RISOTTO’

Oats for supper? Absolutely… although at first I thought it a sacrilege to mess with one of my favourite dishes – risotto. Apparently it isn’t as unusual as I first thought. There are many recipes replacing rice with steel cut oats or pin head oats as it is sometimes called. I gathered together all my usual risotto ingredients, heated the broth and proceeded….   …after a few minutes the starch in the oats started to release… and after 20 –…

PUMPKIN ARANCINI

PUMPKIN ARANCINI

Another inspiration from RecipeTin Eats The second best thing about delicious risotto is having leftovers… and as Francois said last night when I made my really yummy Pumpkin Risotto ‘You should make this more often’. Luckily I had just enough left to make tonight’s even more yummy Pumpkin Arancini. Usually arancini are little risotto balls coated with bread crumbs and fried. To keep the galley mess to a minimum and to use less oil I make my arancini into little…

PUMPKIN RISOTTO

PUMPKIN RISOTTO

One of my favourite sources of delicious and easy recipes is from Nagi of RecipeTin Eats When she posted her recipe for baked Pumpkin Risotto a while ago I thought ‘Oh yum!’ So when I found myself with some pumpkin purée I thought I would make my own boat friendly tiny galley version…   Well, let me tell you it was so good that Captain Francois went back for seconds (a portion much larger than his first) Luckily I doubled…

STORMS and TASTY LEMON, BASIL & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO

STORMS and TASTY LEMON, BASIL & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO

Now that I have perfected my basic Risotto on a Boat and since I have some shrimp in the cooler and a beautiful bouquet of basil begging to be used… (a little boat alliteration) …and to give the barbecue(er) a break. …and since this rainy thunder stormy day has cooled things off I can afford to heat up the cabin a bit… LEMON, BASIL, & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO (refer back to my Risotto on a Boat for quatities and…
