WWDH - Spinach, Fetta and Almond Risotto


Our Wednesday with Donna Hay pick this week is from Chaya, who selected Spinach, Fetta and Pinenut Risotto, available online here.

I had no pinenuts, so I used chopped roasted almonds in their place.

This risotto was a cinch to put together, as all of the work is done by the oven,  and tasted really good.  I served it as a side with some pan fried chicken:

I was thrilled to make this in the oven. It cut down on the work. I forgot the nuts but that is me. Yours looks yummy with the added nuts. Next time - I must remember.

Sounds like a delicious vegetarian risotto! :D

Oh, yours turned out very nice. I'm a believer that Risotto CAN be made in the oven. I would serve this to guests, so much easier than babysitting it on the stovetop. Definitely a winner.

Ah, with almonds would be amazing. I will likely try that another time since pine nuts are so expensive. I love your meal all in all.

Risotto in the oven? Now that's my kind a dish, Gaye. Love the ingredients in this dish too. Yours looks yummy:) I never have pinenuts in the house. But, I always have almonds!

Thanks for sharing, Gaye...

I like this, it is so simple. Easy dinner, just add some sausages, a completed meal with meat, veggies and rice. :)

I loved that this one was baker rather than stirred. So much easier. I bet the almonds were just as good as the pine nuts.
