We love this one too!  I don't use salami when I make it for our family - or cream because I can't eat dairy.  I use soy milk or thick rice-almond milk instead of the cream, and add extra veges and some tomato paste and mixed herbs.  Yum!

 Mama-bell I would be interested to read Chelle's 101 versions of this recipe.  Maybe she could come on and list them for the rest of us  ;) ;)

Made this tonight, but instead of salami I added sliced smoked chicken breasts, tomatoes, tomato pesto, capsicum & celery.
You really could add anything to it.

Creamy Vege Risotto (with freekah)
recipe based on the CT&SF recipe from the EDC.

1 whole onion
1 clove garlic
handful herbs (parsley, oregano, thyme)
1 zucchini
half red capsicum
tablespoon oil
150ml cream (i used lactose free cream but i think it tastes virtually the same)
300ml water
big tablespoon TMX vegie stock
half cup of freekah
half cup of white rice

when i added the cream and water i just cooked it for 3min before i added the freekah. I then cooked that for another 7min and then added the rice. Cooked for another 14min and then left it to sit for a 2 or 3min with the lid on before serving.


Another variation on the CT&SF recipe-
Creamy Pumpkin Pasta
onion and garlic the same
also added some butternut pumpkin, a lump about 10cm x 5cm x 2cm! No idea how much that is, and i chopped it up quite finely, added the oil and cooked for 3min on 100'C on slow.
Added the cream 100ml , water 300ml, vege stock and cooked for 5min on 100'C soft
Added more pumpkin, about the same amount again but this time diced by hand into 1cm cubes, added approx 2tablespoons olives, added 2 tablespoons pine nuts, added spiral pasta (maybe a cup or a bit more).
Cooked on 100'C for 8min on reverse soft.
served with basil, shaved parmesan, salt & pepper.

i don't have any others already typed up i don't think... i'll have another look in some other threads...

but i seriously use this recipe ALL the time.
I just open the fridge and choose any combo of vegies or nuts,
then see what i feel like as far as rice, fettucine, lentils, freekah, spiral pasta, even chunky left over roast potatoes!!! and add them in.
and then choose natural yoghurt (made in TMX) or cream, or leftover vege soup, pesto, or anything and ta-da!
dinner.

it has never not worked regardless of what i have stuck in there.

Tenina should check this thread and mention how variations can be done.
Thanks so much merlot!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

i just found mention of another combo i used a while back. sorry for not having quantities but i don't really use them anymore now that i am so familiar with this recipe base. I just stick it all in.... but my comment in another forum was-

I did cauliflower, zucchini, tomato, salami, quinoa, and spiral pasta. B****y yum. The kids even ate it.

i imagine i would have used about a half a cup of quinoa and maybe 3/4 cup spiral pasta.  My scales were broken for the longest time so i stopped weighing things.

tonight's effort was-
all the same for cream, water, fettucine and the general method but the vegies in there were-

1 onion
1 zucchini
1 small green capsicum
half a smallish eggplant
1 carrot

then 5 tomatoes

i did not use vegie stock cos i ran out.

i really like the eggplant flavour :)

Thanks for these Merlot. After reading about the freekah I bought some this morning and can't wait to try it.
