- ½ cup of peas
- 2 cups of baby spinach
- ½ cup of flat leaf parsley leaves
- 1 zest and juice of lemon

- Heat a large saucepan or frying pan with lid over a medium heat and add olive oil. While, the oil is heating roughly chop the onion and deseed and chop the capsicum.
- Sauté the onion, capsicum and garlic for 5 minutes, or until soft.
- Add the smokey paprika and rice and stir until fully coated.
- Next add the tinned tomatoes and chicken stock, stir and bring to the boil. Once the liquid has boiled reduce the heat, and simmer covered for 15 -20 minutes stirring occasionally. The risotto will be ready when the rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed.

- Season with salt and pepper and squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the top. Serve with the remaining lemon cut into wedges.
