Dave's Rough Chorizo and Wild Mushroom Risotto

Ideal for when moral is low as the dish bursting with flavours that will brighten up the mood for anyone.

This is a rough and ready outdoor enthusiasts adaptation of a classic Italian dish. Ideal for woodland bivouacs where some ingredients can be found growing wild, but only if you know what you are doing. This dish is reasonably lightweight when carrying raw ingredients, full of flavours and gives a high amount of energy so is perfect for many outdoor pursuits.

One of the beauties of this dish is that the ingredients add most of the flavours themselves - for instance the chorizo sausage makes everything taste so good. The dish can easily be made vegetarian by removing the chorizo but I would recommend adding some additional spices if you do this.


4-5 tablespoons olive oil,
2-3 shallots.
225g chorizo ring.
200g Wild mushrooms (can use other mushrooms if desired).
4-5 garden pea pods.
200g Arborio risotto rice.
1 x Vegetable stock cube.
Water, 1-2 sprigs Parsley.
1-2 sprigs thyme.
Grated Parmesan Bread for scooping.
3 - 4 tablespoons off oil into the pan and bring to the heat.

Cooking Instructions

Roughly slice the shallots and throw into the pan followed by the sliced chorizo ring. Stir for 1-2 minutes. Roughly chop the mushrooms and add along with the peas to the pan and continue to stir for another 1-2 minutes. Crumble in the stock cube and add approx 200ml of water. Add the risotto rice and the thyme.

Allow to simmer stirring every 1-2 minutes. Add water when needed until the rice is cooked. Allow to boil down until the majority of the water is gone leaving the juicy risotto and then add the remaining olive oil. Add some finely chopped parsley and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Great for scooping at with fresh bread or eating straight out the pot.

bon appetit
