Tranquil week in Hereford
We spent the last week before going back to university at Ben’s home. Such a relaxed place with so much nature, an amazing country house and two cute dogs and lovely parents.
We cooked them a broccoli risotto with broccoli pesto and goats cheese. Mainly inspired by the on-going joke that when Ben was little he threw up after eating too much broccoli and that he hates it ever since. At least he enjoyed the dinner so that’s all good! He made the roast parsnips and sweet potato.
For the broccoli pesto I used raw broccoli with the rest of the ingredients like fresh basil, a bit of garlic, olive oil and so on. Crunchy texture due to the raw broccoli but it went well with the creamy risotto.
