Green Pea + Spinach Risotto
My green pea and spinach risotto was inspired by a good friend who just returned from Italy. It’s a simple and nourishing meal that is purely delicious comfort food and makes you feel great from the inside out. When I make risotto my aim is to focus on using more vegetables rather than a lot of rice and the secret is to keep it simple. This risotto is fabulous any time of year and you can use either frozen or fresh peas, when they are in season.
What’s great about it:
This makes a perfect pre-workout meal that nourishes your body without weighing you down. Green peas are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. They are a great source of Vitamin A, K, folate, fibre and packed with quality protein for repair as well as iron for energy metabolism. Leafy greens such as spinach are anti-inflammatory to the body and loaded with alkalinising phytonutrients to nourish your immune system and promote healing.
