  • 15ml spoon olive oil
  • 250g risotto rice
  • 5ml spoon vegetable stock powder
  • 1-1.5 litres boiling water

  • 10ml spoon chopped thyme


    1. Prepare the vegetables. - peel and chop onion - slice mushrooms - peel and crush garlic.
    2. Fry the onion and garlic until soft.
    3. Add mushrooms, and fry for another 2 minutes.
