Wild Mushroom & Pea Risotto

Wild Mushroom and Pea Risotto

Christopher: ‘If you’re looking for cheap gourmet food this is the perfect dish for you! Superb as a either starter or a main course. The joy of this Italian staple is its versatility add in pretty much any fish, meat or vegetable you want. We decide to double the amount of rice and stock mentioned below because we’re making arancini tomorrow!’

If you’re not a rice fan take a look at our vegan Pearl Barley & Asparagus version.
