Ingredients

  • oil for frying
  • onion 1, finely chopped
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed
  • bacon 4 back rashers, finely chopped
  • risotto rice or carnaroli or arborio 200g
  • chicken stock fresh, made up to 1 litre
  • cherry tomatoes 12, take the stalks off if you prefer

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat a little oil in a wide pan and fry the onion gently for a few minutes until soft, add the garlic and half of the bacon and fry everything together. Add the rice and stir well and then add the stock a couple of ladles at a time, stirring each lot in until it is completely absorbed and the risotto is creamy but still retains a little bite (you might not need to use all of the stock).

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat another pan with a little oil and cook the remaining bacon with the tomatoes over a high heat until browned. Spoon over the risotto to serve.
