This is an amazing revelation. There is another chorizo risotto recipe on here which can be made in the microwave. Last night, for the first time, I tried it at a Pampered Chef show in the oven. No stirring, no faffing, just Chuck in the ingredients and Bung in the oven! It worked perfectly and was absolutely delicious. So here it is just for you!
- 2 onion, (about 100 g prepared weight)
- 350 g Arborio risotto rice
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 200 g dry-cured Spanish chorizo sauasge, diced
- 2-3 cloves garlic, pressed
- 1.5 l hot chicken stock
- 130 g sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (drained weight), drained
- 80 g Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
- 2-3 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
- Finely chop onion using Food Chopper.
- Dice sun-dried tomatoes on Cutting Board using Utility Knife.
- Place onion, rice, olive oil, chorizo, stock, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic pressed using Garlic Press in Deep Covered Baker; mix well using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®.
- Put in oven at 200C with the lid on.
- Check at 35 minutes. It may need another 10 minutes. (I took the lid off for the last 10 minutes)
- Meanwhile, finely grate cheese using Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater and chop parsley using Professional Shears and a Prep Bowl.
- Remove baker from oven; add grated cheese and parsley and mix well. Cover with lid; let stand 5 minutes or until cheese has melted and risotto has a creamy texture.
Serve. Yield: 8 (For 4 people halve ingredients and use Round Covered Baker)

Diced Spanish chorizo sausage can usually be found in the fresh cooked meat section of supermarkets. Alternatively buy a whole chorizo sausage, remove any skin and dice the sausage before adding to the risotto.
Substitute the hot chicken stock with hot vegetable stock, if desired.
8th April 2014: Update…. I have recently been making this Chorizo in my Rectangular Baker (i.e. no lid) and just cooking it for approx 30-35 minutes until it is done. Just Chuck (it in the Stoneware) and Bung (it in the oven)!!!
