This risotto is creamy, rich and packed with prawns and heaps of vegies

Ingredients

chicken stock

4 cup(s), (1L)

olive oil

1 tbs

leek(s)

1 whole, washed, drained, chopped

garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

fresh lemon rind

2 tsp, grated

rice, arborio, dry

1¼ cup(s), (250g)

green prawns

500 g, thawed

frozen green peas

1 cup(s), (120g)

Instructions

  1. Place chicken stock in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and keep at a simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add leek and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and rind and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add rice and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  3. Gradually add hot stock to rice mixture, 13 cup (80ml) at a time, stirring occasionally, until all liquid has absorbed. This should take about 25 minutes. The rice should be tender but still firm to the bite, and the risotto creamy. Add prawns and peas to rice mixture halfway through adding stock. Serve risotto immediately.
