Pea & Mint Risoni!

photo (14)I can’t get enough risoni! Once more I find myself reaching for it in the pantry to use as a side dish. I had some beautiful plump lamb rump, some fresh mint and freshly shelled peas so I thought introducing some risoni would be perfect and I was right….here is a recipe that is just bloomin’ lovely!

What you will need………..

1 cup risoni

1 cup fresh shelled peas or frozen if that’s all you have

2 garlic cloves, crushed

½ red onion, chopped

½ cup cherry tomatoes,  quartered

1 tbsp freshly chopped mint leaves

1 cup Greek style yoghurt

2 tbsp mint sauce

How to do it……….

Cook risoni to packet instructions, while this is cooking heat some olive oil and a knob of butter in a wok or large fry pan. Add the garlic and onion and cook until soft, then add the peas and toss around for a minute or so. Add the tomatoes and mint leaves and cook for another minute. Now add the cooked risoni, salt & pepper and stir through. Combine yogurt and mint sauce in a bowl and dollop over  lamb rump, fillet or chops,   it’s that simple and delicious! I hope you love this yummy side as much as I do………enjoy!
