Prep Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr

Ingredients

Risotto

  • 1 Cup of Risotto Rice (Arborio)
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsps of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Cup of fresh/frozen peas
  • ½ Cup of pureed peas
  • 2 Cups of vegetable stock (I used Knorr stock cubes)
  • Salt & pepper
  • ¼ Cup of mint leaves, chopped and stalks removed

Dressing

  • 1 Cup of mint, chopped and stalks removed
  • 1 Cup of extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • To make the dressing add the mint leaves to the extra virgin to a pan and leave simmer for 20 minutes to allow the mint infuse. Remove the mint leaves with a sieve set aside
  • To make the risotto, add the extra virgin olive oil to a saucepan and sautee the onions on a low heat until slightly cooked
.
  • Add the risotto rice, seasoning and stir to combine
  • Slowly begin adding the vegetable stock, a small amount at a time so it slightly covers the risotto. Continue to do this until all of the vegetable stock has been used and absorbed by the rice, stir continuously.
  • Add the mint leaves, pea puree and peas and heat on a low simmer for 8-10 minutes
  • Transfer to your serving bowls, drizzle the dressing and garnish with fresh mint leaves
