This tasty dish has less fat than most risottos and that along with its great minty flavour makes it definitely worth a try.

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 125g arborio risotto rice
  • 1 vegetable stock cube, with 450ml boiling water
  • 125g frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • Butter
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmesan

Method

  • Heat a large knob of butter in a pan and add the onion. Cook for 3 minutes then stir in the rice.

  • Add a ladleful of stock and stir, until absorbed. Keep adding stock until you have used it all. The rice should be plump and tender.

  • Stir in the peas and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the mint and season. If you’re fond of Parmesan, sprinkle some on before serving.
