Our Thermomix Garlic Prawn Risotto is a firm favourite in our house! A rich creamy risotto, with fresh prawns, parmesan and baby spinach... YUM!
If you've been visiting ThermoBliss for a while, you'll know that we're massive fans of making risotto in the Thermomix. It's quick, it's easy and the results are oh-so-good! And our Thermomix Garlic Prawn Risotto is all of those things and so much more!
I like to stir baby spinach through my risotto at the end, but that step is entirely optional. You can always substitute it for sun-dried tomatoes or even frozen peas. Our Garlic Prawn Risotto will easily feed 4 people, making it a great family dinner!
