This Thermomix Chorizo, Tomato & Baby Spinach Risotto is the perfect weeknight meal. It's fast, fresh and packed full of flavour! What's not to love?!
I love to make this risotto with extra chilli flakes, but when I'm making it for my son as well, I leave them out completely. It's totally up to you. Add as much or as little chilli as you like!
Or if you prefer something more neutral but equally as yummy, try out our new recipe here on Chicken and Mushroom Risotto.
The chorizo sausages give this Thermomix Chorizo, Tomato & Baby Spinach Risotto the most delicious flavour. They're definitely the star of the show!
And if you've got any leftovers (this recipe makes 4 large serves or 6 smaller serves), simply pop them in the freezer or reheat for lunch. YUM!
