Ingredients

  • 600ml-800ml strong vegetable stock*
  • 200g risotto rice
  • 2 red peppers, sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 x 200g pack of green veg medley or a mix of frozen peas, chopped green beans and fine asparagus
  • 50g Parmesan or vegetarian alternative, finely grated, plus more to serve

Step by step

  1. Put 600ml stock in a saucepan on a medium heat, bring to a simmer. Add the rice, peppers, onion and a pinch of salt and simmer for 15 minutes, covered.
    Tip
    *Use GF stock if required
  2. Remove the lid, and add more stock if the rice is looking dry. Add the green veg and cook for another 5-10 minutes until both the rice and veg are tender. Stir every minute or so, to make the rice more creamy.
  3. Stir in the Parmesan, season with salt and lots of cracked black pepper to taste, and serve with more Parmesan over the top.
    Tip
    Bulk it up
    Add cooked and shredded chicken in the last few minutes to warm through 

    Slim it down
    Reduce rice to 150g and Parmesan to 30g
