Bacon, Tomato & Mushroom Risotto in the Thermomix

One of the things that I love the most about the Thermomix is the ability to make a risotto in minutes while I'm off doing other things. This risotto is a family favourite - and one that Miss Five and Miss Two eat without a word of complaint and leave an empty bowl, which makes for one happy Mummy.

1 brown onion
One handful each of parsley and basil
1 clove garlic
50g olive oil
150g bacon, trimmed and cut into large pieces
400g tin of chopped tomatoes
150g mushrooms
1 bunch of english spinach
400g arborio rice
3 tablespoons vegetable stock concentrate
100g white wine
600g water
Freshly ground pepper & grated parmesan cheese to serve

1. Peel and cut onion in half. Place onion, garlic, parsley and basil in the Thermomix bowl and chop for 3 seconds, speed 6
2. Add bacon to the bowl and chop for 2 seconds, speed 6
3. Add oil and saute with MC lid off for 5 minutes, Varoma, speed 1
4. Add butterfly attachment, rice and wine. Cook 2 minutes, 100 degrees, reverse, speed soft
5. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, stock and water. Cook 18 minutes, 100 degrees, reverse, speed soft
6. Wash and tear up spinach, placing in the bottom of your Thermoserver. Check rice for tenderness, and pour into Thermoserver. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before stiring through spinach and serving with grated parmesan and freshly ground pepper.
