Risoni with almonds, cream cheese and Bimi® broccoli



5 minutes


20 minutes




  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and bring a pot of water to boil.

  2. Place half of the Bimi® broccoli in a casserole dish with olive oil, some salt and the flaked almonds and roast in the oven for 12 minutes.

  3. Cook the risoni according to the package instructions. Whilst the Bimi® broccoli and risoni is cooking, peel and finely dice the shallot and roughly chop the second half of the Bimi® broccoli. Drain the risoni pasta once it is cooked and keep some of the pasta water – this will be used to thicken the sauce.

  4. In a deep pan or wok, fry the shallots and the chopped Bimi® broccoli with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Create the sauce by adding the vegetable stock, lemon juice and cream cheese. Then add the pasta and stir until creamy. A little pasta water can be added to achieve the desired consistency. Season with pepper, salt, fresh lemon zest, and juice then serve on a plate and top with the roasted Bimi® broccoli and flaked almonds.
