Menu Plan for Spring II: Week 4, Sunday

Risotto with Pork and Avocado
Fresh Fruit

Cooking time:  25 minutes for menu       Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

          I may have mentioned that risotto is perfect for leftovers - in this case the leftovers from both of the starters: 1/2 avocado, 1/2 red pepper. They make this a light, colorful risotto. 

Risotto with Pork, Avocado and Red Pepper

Total time: 30 minutes
      Avocado is not a typical ingredient for risotto, or other hot dishes, but, added at the last minute, it stays intact and just starts to melt into the hot rice, adding a luscious creaminess.
