Ingredients

  • 25g dried porcini
  • 50g butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 200g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 150g risotto rice
  • a glass white wine
  • 750ml vegetable stock, kept simmering
  • 100g spinach, washed and chopped
  • few shavings (optional) parmesan

Method

  • STEP 1

    Soak the porcini in a cup of boiling water for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid through a sieve to remove any grit and keep for the risotto. Roughly chop the porcini.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the butter in a wide shallow pan and cook the onion and garlic until softened. Add the chestnut mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, then add the porcini and risotto rice and stir until coated.

  • STEP 3

    Tip in the wine and bubble until it’s all absorbed. Gradually add the stock and porcini soaking liquid, stirring until the rice is tender but still has a little bite (you might not need all the stock). Stir through the spinach until just wilted. Serve sprinkled with a little parmesan if you like.
