Rocket and Lemon Risotto

I’m so ready for some healthy January eating. I’m kick starting that with a warm and hearty risotto. Perfect for coeliac, vegans and in fact anyone who enjoys a nice meal. 

Start with a little oil in a large pan. I’m using a few squirts of olive Fry Light as a lower calorie and fat option. 

Add half a chopped onion and a couple of chopped garlic cloves to the pan and fry. Once the onion has softened add arborio risotto rice to the pan and splash over with white wine. Keep the heat high so the wine bubbles off quickly and then cover the rice with hot stock. I use Kallo low salt vegetable stock as it is one of the few gluten free stock cubes. 

Continue cooking and top up the stock as the rice cooks and expands. After cooking for approximately 20 minutes add rocket, peas and squeeze some lemon juice and basil into the risotto and stir fry. 

Cook for a further 10 minutes stirring continuously to ensure even cooking. 

This is a delicious gluten free, veggie meal and I hope you really enjoy it.
