Pink oyster mushroom and fresh pea risotto (from previous post). I warmed stock ice cubes for handy flavor-at-the-ready while, in another pan, sautéed sliced onions and the mushrooms, torn into bite-sized pieces.
After adding the rice, I poured ladlefuls of warm stock into the mixture and sipped an evening cocktail as I dutifully stirred.
When the risotto was almost ready, I added a small bowl of freshly shelled peas and stirred them in, watching for them to turn bright green from the heat and moisture of the great porridge.
Spooned into bowls, the finishing touch was a pinch of crushed pink peppercorns, a perfect lil' extra to the dish. #lickingtheplate #peppercorn #mushroom #oystermushrooms #pea #risotto #pinkpeppercorn #stock #summer #sundaysupper

Can you share your ice block technique? I need this for so many things. Beautiful photo!

Sure! I pour homemade stock - after it has cooled - into an ice cube tray, freeze, and then transfer the cubes into a resealable bag. Kept in the freezer, I take as needed. ?
