Ingredients

  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 carrot
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 small leek
  • 1½ cup risotto rice (arborio, sant andrea,...)
  • 1 ts smoked paprika
  • 1 ts turmeric
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 tbs finely chopped parsley
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup frozen peas


Method

  1. Finely chop spring onion, carrots, garlic, leeks and parsley.
  2. In a pan, heat a tablespoon of oil, add chopped onions, carrots, garlic and leeks and gently fry while stirring, until the vegetables soften.
  3. Add risotto rice and season with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and half a teaspoon of turmeric.
  4. Pour in vegetable stock, add a cup of water and chopped parsley.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer on low, stirring the risotto occasionally.
  6. 5 minutes before the risotto is done, add the frozen peas and more water, if needed. The risotto needs to be wet and creamy at this point, with a bit leftover liquids in the pan.
  7. Once the risotto is cooked, remove the pan from heat and with a lid on let the risotto rest for a couple of minutes. During this time the risotto will soak up the remaining liquids.
  8. Serve hot with a teaspoon of chopped parsley.
