  • leek x1 – root and top removed and cleaned then thinly sliced

Mushroom and courgette risotto – ingredients

Add 1 cup of risotto rice (short grain) and 1/2 tsp of dried thyme – stir in and then add 1/2 cup of white wine or beer. Stir this in until evaporated and then start adding hot vegetable stock a cup at a time, stirring constantly and adding the next cup of stock when the liquid has evaporated.

The amount of stock needed and the time for cooking will depend on the rice used. I like to use brown rice but this takes a long time to cook! 45 minutes to an hour – so you might prefer white.

When the rice is close to being done add a handful of sliced greens (purple sprouting broccoli is good at this time of year [April], or spinach or kale), and a tbsp of lemon juice.

Check the flavour and add pepper and salt as needed.

Serve with vegan parmesan if you have some.
