Barley Risotto with Bacon & Chestnuts
Its December and so the chestnuts are becoming more readily available in the shops. They are an ingredient that I’m still learning about, so I tend to only buy them pre-cooked for ease. This barley risotto was inspired by a recipe on BBC Good Food and was supposed to also have rocket in, but I was so excited to eat it I forgot to add it at the end. It was still delicious without it, but the rocket would add plenty of extra good nutrition and a bit more texture.
