Instructions

  1. Dissolve 1 vegetable stock cube in 1.2 litres water. Bring half the stock to the boil with half the peas and simmer for 5 minutes. In a food processor, blend well.
  2. Add the remaining stock to this purée to give a pouring consistency.
  3. Heat half the cooking spray in a heavy-based pan. Crush the garlic and add it to the pan. Add the spring onion and stir. Add the rice and stir for 2 minutes to coat it with spray. Add enough pea stock to cover the rice. Cook gently, stirring all the time. Add more stock as it is absorbed into the rice.
