Tomato & Basil Risotto meets Harissa Chicken Bone Broth…

The bone broth from the Harissa Roast Chicken is beautifully warming, without being hot!  It was sitting in my fridge in all its jellified wibbly wobbly gloriousness with a lovely warm red colour… I definitely prefer using broth for risotto than soup, although I’m sure this would have made a lovely tomato based soup… But,Continue reading “Tomato & Basil Risotto meets Harissa Chicken Bone Broth…”
