The Pampered Chef ® Oven-made Sun-Dried Tomato & Chorizo Risotto Recipe

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!

Ingredients

  • 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

Method 

  1. Finely chop onion using Food Chopper.
  2. Dice sun-dried tomatoes on Cutting Board using Utility Knife.
  3. 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®.
  4. Put in oven at 200C with the lid on.
  5. Check at 35 minutes. It may need another 10 minutes. (I took the lid off for the last 10 minutes)
  6. Meanwhile, finely grate cheese using Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater and chop parsley using Professional Shears and a Prep Bowl.
  7. 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)!!!

Ham and Broccoli Ring

This is a delicious and simple dinner or party recipe.  The broccoli is chopped so finely using the food chopper that even those who don’t like it happily eat it.

IMG_4825

Ingredients
2 packets (240g each) chilled fresh dough for croissants*
115g/ 4 oz ham
1 small onion
115g/4oz broccoli florets
1 small bunch fresh parsley
140g/5oz gruyere cheese (or cheddar if gruyere is not available)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 lemon
Freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas 4. Unroll dough and separate into 8 triangles. Arrange in a circle on Classic Round Stone with wide ends of triangles overlapping in the centre and pointed ends towards the outside (there should be about 13cm opening in centre of Stone). Gently press edges where they meet to seal.

2. Chop ham, broccoli and parsley using Food Chopper; place in Classic Batter Bowl. Chop onion with Food Chopper and add 2 tablespoons to the mixture. Grate cheese into bowl using Deluxe Cheese Grater.  Juice lemon and measure 1 tablespoon. Add mustard, lemon juice and black pepper to mixture. Crush garlic with Garlic Press and add. Mix well using Classic Scraper.

3. Spoon ham mixture evenly onto widest end of each dough triangle. Bring outside points of triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends in the centre (filling should not be completely covered). Place Baking Stone in Classic and Rectangle Rack.

Serves 8, or 16 sample servings.

*Note: the croissant dough may not be available. It is in cans and is in the refrigerated dairy section. If you can’t get hold of it, use ready rolled puff pastry (either frozen and defrosted or chilled).  You will then need to cut the pastry rectangle into 4 smaller rectangles and then cut each one corner to corner to make 8 triangles.
