Method

  1. Heat the oil and butter in a large deep frying pan. Add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the mushrooms and garlic and cook gently for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the rice to coat with the onion and mushroom mixture. Pour in the wine and cook over a moderate heat for about 3 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the wine is absorbed.
  3. Reduce to a gentle heat. Add the tomatoes and 125ml/ 4fl oz of the stock and cook for about 5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed. Pour in a further 125ml/4fl oz stock and continue cooking until absorbed. Repeat with the remaining stock, until it is all absorbed and the rice is creamy and tender.
  4. Stir in the parsley and half the parmesan. Season to taste. Scatter the spinach over the risotto. Cover and cook gently for 4-5 minutes until the spinach has just wilted. Serve immediately sprinkled with the remaining parmesan.

I love the classic mushroom risotto, so thought I'd give this a try. Really nice flavour, relatively easy, the tomatoes really worked, although I don't think the spinach added much other than colour.

Very easy to make and tasted really good. The second time I made it I doubled the ingredients for 4 portions - just forgot it would take longer to cook!
scrumptious!

This was a great meal for veggies or meat lovers alike! Everyone I have cooked it for has really enjoyed it and there have never been complaints about the lack of meat! Lovely!

Loved it. Didn't add the wine as hubby had drunk it (don't get me started) but the flavours were excellent and as good, if not better, than you get in a restaurant. Will definately make again.

Loved this. My husband is a complete carnivore but there were no complaints about the lack of meat in this dish. I didn't use the parsley, still tasted great.

I just made this and its very tasty. I didn't have all the ingredients such as wine and tomato but I am very satisfied with the result and will do it again in bulk for a cheap easy dinner for the house.

I love this dish I have cooked it many time for friends and my husband. I think its better than oven baking it as in some recipe's on here the flavour is more intense. Yo can get great satisfaction through stiring in the ingrediants..

Tryit..

This risotto is very tasty and easy to prepare. I made it for a friend who came round for dinner and the next time I invited her she insisted that I make it again. Now that's what I call a success!

Superb! And it was so simple to do. I found it hard to believe that the simple ingredients could produce such a flavour!
