Flavour packed, rich, creamy AND ready in just 15 minutes.  This Mushroom Risotto is proof you don’t have to spend ages in the kitchen for a totally delicious dinner.


  • 1 medium brown onion
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 200g of mixed swiss brown and cup mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 250g pack of steamed white microwave rice
  • ½ cup vegetable stock
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ bunch flat leaf parsley


  1. Finely chop the onion, slice the mushrooms and mince the garlic. Set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat then add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. While, the onion and garlic are cooking, microwave the rice according to packet directions and set aside.
  3. Add the rice and vegetable stock to the frying pan, give everything a big stir and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until most of the stock has absorbed. Meanwhile thinly chop the parsley.
  4. Add the baby spinach and stir, until it has just wilted. Remove the frying pan from heat then mix through the parmesan cheese and parsley.
  5. Divide the risotto between two bowls. Enjoy!


  • If someone you live with thinks it’s not a meal without meat (oh, hey hubby), just add some supermarket roast chicken with the rice and stock.
  • Cooking for a family. Easy! Just double the ingredients. Except maybe the onion. Unless of course, you love onion. Then go for it.
