About this recipe: This quinoa risotto with fennel was made with waitrose’s “lovelife, red & white quinoa with bulgar”. However you can substitute for any kind of quinoa. Quinoa is usually boiled in water but here it is cooked as risotto rice when you keep on adding stock little by little until it is absorbed. We love the addition of preserved lemons for a slight tangy kick. This tasty vegetarian dish can easily be altered to suit vegans.
I didn't add fennel to mine, but thought this was a really neat idea for cooking quinoa like a risotto. I shall henceforth call it quinotto and add it to my cooking repertoire! - 20 Dec 2015
