€3 Food Challenge – Tomato Bacon Risotto

Is it possible to make a dinner for two people that costs no more than €3? Serena Verbon from Beautylab.nl challenged me and several other bloggers to give it a try. After a lot of brainstorming with my boyfriend Chris and investigating the bottom shelves of the grocery store, I came up with a Tomato Bacon Risotto! Checkout the recipe – in video form – down below!

Please watch the above video for the recipe! This recipe makes enough for two to three people. Here is the list of all the ingredients you need:

  • 300 grams of risotto rice (400 gram for €1,25)
  • 2 cans of tomato paste (€0,08 each)
  • 2 fresh tomatoes (€0,33)
  • 1 onion (€0,18)
  • ±100 gram of bacon (€1,03)
  • 1 liter of chicken stock
  • 1 clove garlic
  • black pepper
  • dried basil

Eight other bloggers did the €3 challenge with me. They all did an amazing job. I definitely recommend checking out their recipe posts:

Hope you enjoyed this recipe post and those of the other bloggers (even if you can not read Dutch and could only looked at the pictures!).

With Love,

    Ziet er lekker uit! Ik zou zelf vanwege mijn allergie voor varkenvlees de bacon weglaten, maar ik denk dat het dan alsnog wel heel lekker is! 🙂

    Ik moet dringend eens leren risotto te maken, dit klinkt wel heel lekker.
