No stir risotto, the perfect hassle free weeknight meal!

By:

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 small red capsicum deseeded and chopped into small pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon of smokey paprika
  • 1 cup of arborio rice (regular rice works fine too)
  • 400g tin of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock
  • 300g marinara seafood mix
  • 1/2 cup of peas
  • 2 cups of baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup of flat leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 lemon
Directions
  • Step 1 Heat a large saucepan or fry pan with lid over a medium heat and add olive oil. Sauté the onion, capsicum and garlic for 5 minutes, or until soft.
  • Step 2 Add the smokey paprika and rice and stir until fully coated.
  • Step 3 Next add the tinned tomatoes and chicken stock, stir and bring to the boil. Once the liquid has boiled reduce the heat, and simmer covered for 15 -20 minutes stirring occasionally. The risotto will be ready when the rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Step 4 Add the marinara mix, peas, spinach and parsley and stir through. Cook for 5 minutes or until all the ingredients are warmed through and the spinach has wilted.
  • Step 5 Season with salt and pepper and squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the top. Serve with the remaining lemon cut into wedges.
