Place the pot/dish in the steam oven for 30 minutes. Then add the rosemary, thyme and skyr. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste. Mix well. Cut up the goat’s cheese and sprinkle onto the risotto. Marinate the baby spinach with oil, apple vinegar, salt and pepper then also add to the risotto. Finally, garnish with chopped roasted almonds.
