Yields2 ServingsCategoryLunch

 130 g risotto rice
 1 l vegetable stock
 200 g chopped tomatoes
 1 tsp basil
 1 tsp oregano
 1 tsp chilli powder
 0.50 tsp rosemary
 2 garlic gloves - chopped
 1 medium onion - diced
 0.50 tsp olive oil
 10 g parmasean - grated
 50 g spinach - chopped

1

Heat a large pan over a medium heat, and all the olive oil, onions and garlic.
Fry off until the onions are translucent and fragrant.

2

While your vegetables are cooking down, add the tomatoes and spices to a blender, and blitz until smooth. (some like to leave some chunks of tomato, it's a preference!)

Add this mixture to the vegetable stock and mix well.

3

Remove the onion and garlic from the pan, and set aside.

Add the rice to the same pan, and toast over a medium heat.
When the rice is starting to brown a little, start to the tomato-stock mixture, and continue to stir.
Add the stock slowly, ensuring enough time for the rice to absorb it.

This process usually takes about 30 minutes.

4

Once all the stock has been absorbed and the rice is softened, add back in the vegetables and mix well.

Add in the chopped spinach, and parmesan (saving a little to top with) right before serving, allowing just enough time for the spinach to wilt and the cheese to melt.

Top with the remaining cheese and enjoy!
