Very Lazy Chorizo, Prawn and Fennel Risotto – 12sp

 Following on from my success using Very Lazy garlic and chillies in my last post, I was keen to road test the one of the other products that the lovely folks there sent me to try, the Very Lazy Smoked Garlic.

This time I decided to go for a risotto and I have to say, these sausages are becoming one of my new favourites! If you can’t get a hold of the sausages in this recipe, you could replace it with diced chicken breast (around 360g) and fry this first instead of the sausages.
