Ingredients
  • 1.2 litres vegetable stock
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 15g butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 300g Asda Arborio Risotto Rice
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 150g frozen peas
  • 100g Grana Padano, grated
Method
  • Keep the stock hot in a pan over a low heat while making the risotto. Cook the onion for 5 minutes in the butter and oil, add the tomatoes and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

  • Stir in the rice and oregano. Add the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring and adding more when the previous addition has been absorbed. Continue until the rice is creamy – you may not need all the stock.

  • Add the peas and cook for 2 minutes. Add half of the cheese and season with black pepper. Serve with shavings of the remaining cheese.
