Method

  1. Heat a large saucepan over a medium heat, then toast the rice, stirring constantly, for 1 min. Add 1 ladleful of hot stock and stir until absorbed. Reduce the heat. Add the rest of the stock, a ladleful at a time, until the rice is almost cooked and stock is absorbed, about 20 mins.
  2. Stir in the peas, cooking for 3-5 mins, then remove the pan from the heat. Add the cheese, lemon juice and seasoning, then stir. Scatter with the lemon zest, then serve immediately, with extra grated Parmesan.

I wasn't so pleased with this one, it wasn't that tasty and a bit stodgy although I followed the recipe fully..

This is really yummy.

Try sweating a shallot and some thyme before adding the rice for added depth of flavour. Delicious...

I tried this recipe yesterday. Its very easy to do and can be done in a very short time. Half of the amount of peas to be used was replaced with fresh broad beans. The taste was lovely. Thank you.

Would using Mint rather than Lemon at the end work just as well?

I don't know where I went wrong with this one, but it turned out a stodgy mess - one lump or two??

This was really lovely. I used fresh peas rather than frozen and they were delicious. Would definitely make this again...and again.
