Serves 4

225g/8oz button mushrooms, wiped and sliced
1 litre vegetable or chicken stock, hot
225g/8oz baby spinach, washed and patted dry
50g/2oz freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Heat 1 tbsp oil and 25g/1oz butter in a pan and fry onion over gentle heat until softened but not brown. Add rice and stir around in the mix to coat all the grains.

  2. I’ve entered a risotto recipe into the #RecipeShed this week too! I’ve never tried making a risotto using the oven rather than the hob but I might be tempted to give this a go. Nice recipe 🙂
