turkey bacon risotto

 

I have a passion for cooking. Almost as strong as my passion for eating. What I love about cooking is the perfect mix of science and art. Cooking is a science. You experiment with ingredients like an alchemist would expecting to make gold.


turkey bacon risotto (serves 4)

5 garlic cloves minced (I love garlic)
2 table spoons of olive oil
1/2 cup of sliced turkey bacon
1/4 cup of thin sliced scallions 
1/4 cup thinly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup of basmati rice (or any rice you prefer)
1/4 cup of lentils
1/4 up of frozen peas
1 small can of whole kernel corn
2 slices of swiss cheese (or your favorite cheese)
salt to taste
hot water

on a skillet, heat up the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in medium heat. Add the garlic and cook it until golden. Add the scallions and cilantro. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the turkey bacon and cook it for 5 minutes. 
add the rice, lentils, frozen peas, corn and cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
add 1 cup of hot water, bring to a boil, then set heat to the low. Cover skillet. 
you will need to add water constantly, until lentils are al dente. Once lentils are al dente (rice will be fully cooked), cover with slices of cheese, salt to taste and serve.


It is yummy and filling. Serve. Enjoy!

Hi sweetie, love that you love to cook. You know it is an art just like your beautiful watercolors. I love love to bake but my hips rebel so have resorted to cooking. Sigh not as hard on the hips I guess. This looks yummy.

You have so many talents, Ana! this looks very good although I wouldn't put bacon in it and that would probably spoil it??? Anyway I hope you do publish more recipes I like to try things that my blogger friends post!
