Lemons & Leeks … and Granola

Here’s a perfect use for those preserved lemons. The Risotto . . . not necessarily the granola.


Photos and migraines

LemonsAndLeeksVertR Lemons and LeeksR I have been utilizing my new cookbook, “It’s All Good,” by Gwyneth Paltrow, a lot lately. It’s pretty good. And healthy to the point my migraines have been considerably reduced! Whoo Hoo!

Anyway, I plan on trying a risotto recipe this week, and decided some of the ingredients needed to be photographed.

I have not tried this recipe yet, but it looks pretty good.


1 quart vegetable stock
1 lemon
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
1 leek, white and light green parts only, thoroughly washed and finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
Leaves from 6 sprigs of thyme
Coarse sea salt
1 cup Arborio rice
2 cups baby spinach or any other baby greens
1 cup fresh English peas (you can substitute small frozen peas)
1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh basil
Freshly ground black pepper
