Easy Mushroom Risotto

Easy Mushroom Risotto
Serves 4
You can make restaurant style risotto at home in a few simple steps. A real crowd pleaser as a side dish or a vegetarian main dish. Did you know that mushrooms are the only vegetable in the produce section with natural Vitamin D?!

Ingredients
  1. 1 tsp vegetable oil
  2. 1 bunch spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  3. 300g risotto rice
  4. 1 garlic clove, crushed
  5. 200g mushrooms, sliced (Stronger flavour mushrooms work well like Shiitake)
  6. 900ml hot vegetable stock
  7. Ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan or saucepan and cook the spring onions over a medium-high heat for a few seconds. Add the rice and cook over a low heat for about 1 min, stirring all the time until the rice looks glossy but not brown.
  2. Add the garlic and mushrooms, then pour in about half the hot stock and stir well. Cook over a medium heat for 20-25 mins, stirring often and gradually and adding the remaining stock a little at a time until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.
  3. Check that the rice is tender. It should have a nice creamy texture. If it needs cooking for a bit longer, add a little more hot water.
  4. Check the seasoning, adding some pepper if needed. Serve.
