Sausage, Pepper and Fennel Risotto — 7 Comments

  1. Love the recipe ! I have never cooked with fennel !! I just had a beetroot, chard and goat’s cheese risotto at a restaurant that was fabulous !

  2. A couple of years ago, I made the resolution to pick up one unfamiliar vegetable per week and cook with it, just to learn about new things. It was fun and I did get familiar with a few new faves. I’ll be interested to read about your explorations.

  3. I like fennel, in fact, I love it with fish; I am like you, I just dont think about getting it. this risotto sounds delicious, will try it next time.

  4. I tried fennel once and found it very stringy. My husband was not impressed so have not tried it again. I should when we are in France because growing conditions are different there. We intend visiting the Bergerac Grand Frais now that we know about it, when we are there this summer.
    I gather from the Dronne Valley Network that Bordeaux’s Ikea is complete – the parking and restaurant are excellent and it is fully stocked. Hopefully we will be able to get a suitable mattress this year!

  5. manningroad, beetroot, chard and goat cheese risotto? Oh. My. On my list to try when my chard grows….
    Zoomie, it’s good to break out of the routine. I wish that store were closer!
    tasteofbeirut, I like it with fish, too. And raw in salads. Actually, I just like it!
    Tanna, it’s a really big store. 30% is a lot ;-))
    Gill, you’ll love Grand Frais…. wonderful place – but it’s cold inside LOL. I’ve never found fennel to be stringy – or at least not more so than celery.
