This came out better than I could have imagined. It is coming into winter here in NZ so I used brocolli instead of asparagus & did add spinach as noted in the blurb. Also fried some chopped bacon till crisp and stirred through at the end with the steamed vege and cheese (& a good coarse grind of black pepper). The result had it ALL. Creamy, garlicky leeks and rice, fresh lightly steamed greens, crispy texture of the bacon, and moreish sticky cheesie finish.
I've read other reviews from other recipes on this site saying it is worth buying a pressure cooker just to make risotto - after trying this recipe I couldn't agree more.
