Cooking Time

40 Mins


4 Servings


  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cups (1L) chicken stock
  • 1 ½ cups (315 g) arborio rice
  • 1 cup (160 g) sunflower seeds
  • 100 g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1 each lemon, grapefruit, and lime
  • ½ bunch oregano leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 cured chorizo, casing removed, flesh crumbled
  • 1 bunch cavolo nero, (or regular kale) stalks removed, leaves shredded
  • 50 g marinated goat’s cheese feta (substitute cow’s milk feta)



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease a baking tray and line with baking paper. 
  2. Scatter chorizo over the prepared tray.
  3. Peel and segment lemon, grapefruit, and lime over a bowl, catching juices and reserving membranes. Squeeze each membrane over the bowl to collect all the juice, then discard squeezed skins.
  4. Heat butter in a large flameproof baking dish over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring regularly, for 4 minutes or until softened. 
  5. Add rice and sunflower seeds, and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. 
  6. Add half the stock and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. 
  7. Add citrus segments, reserved juice, oregano, and remaining 2 cups (500 mL) stock, stirring to combine. 
  8. Transfer risotto to the center of the oven, placing the chorizo tray on a lower shelf. Bake risotto and chorizo halfway, for 20 minutes or until rice is just undercooked. 
  9. Stir through cavolo nero and bake for a further 5-10 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed, cavolo nero is tender and chorizo is golden. 
  10. Stir through feta and scatter over chorizo to serve and enjoy!
