About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Red wine risotto with bacon and spinach

It was one of those days. Something I had in my kitchen and made red wine risotto with bacon and spinach.   Red wine I used is from Chili which went great with this risotto dish.

 First I diced 6 slices of bacon and cook with olive oil until crisp. Drain on paper towel and set a side.

In the same skillet add a tablespoon olive oil and added 1 large diced onions and 2 clove garlic. Saute for 8 minutes
 Then I added in 1 1/2 cup Arborio rice to the saute onions and garlic. Cooked rice until translucent on the outside for about 3 minutes.

 Added a cup of red wine and....
 2 cups of broth at a time to the risotto. Lower heat and let simmer. Kept stirring and stirring until it began to dry out and added some more broth and wine.
 Add in spinach, Parmesan, and more broth until rice is tender.
Simmering and stirred frequently so it doesn't stick and burn. 
 When rice is tendered remove from heat and season with salt for taste

Serve on a plate with crisp bacon and grated Parmesan cheese
