leeky-pea risotto, bbq lentils and steve's yam stew

this is another "lost" night dinner w/friends. i made leeky-pea risotto, i was feeling a bit lazy though so i tried a recipe i found online for baked risotto.

i sauteed an onion and two leeks (chopped) in a little oil, added a couple crushed cloves of garlic, then i added the arborio rice (2 cups) to the pot and cooked for a couple minutes, then i added 5 cups of water, some salt and pepper. i moved the pot into the oven at 400 and cooked for 30 min. when i took it out of the oven, i stirred in a little earth balance, some frozen peas and about a 1/2 cup of water. came out delicious! the baked risotto method isn't quite as creamy as the stovetop version, but really good, and a whole lot lazier!

the bbq lentils were easy too! i cooked the lentils in water on the stovetop for 30 min until cooked, then i added some homemade bbq sauce, and transferred this to the oven to bake along side the risotto.

our friend steve brought over the stew, it was a combination of yams, potatoes, chickpeas in a creamy peanuty sauce. super yummy!
