    Very basic one: soften a finely chopped onion in your pan, add your rice, pour in some stock to cover and simmer. Add more stock as it is absorbed. Keep on adding and stirring and when you're adding the last bit, chuck in what you want - cooked chicken, sliced mushrooms, frozen veg - and keep simmering slowly til all stock is absorbed and veg is warm through. Texture should be creamy. If you like it more al dente then cook it to how you like it! season to taste. The packet should give you quantities of rice and water or stock to use.

    Butternut squash is a good one - dice the squash and roast until tender.

    Here's a recipe which is completely FREE on EE!
    Enjoy :) x

    Ham Risotto with peas and sweetcorn
    Serves: 4
    Prep time: 10 minutes
    Cook time: 20 minutes

    Ingredients
    1 onion
    340g/12oz lean ham
    113g/4oz Parmesan cheese
    Fry Light
    255g/9oz Arborio rice
    852ml chicken stock made with Bovril
    2 tbsp mixed herbs
    198g/7oz frozen peas
    397g/14oz canned sweetcorn
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    finely chopped fresh parsley

    Method
    1. Prepare the ingredients: peel and finely chop the onion, dice the ham and finely grate the cheese.

    2. Spray a pan with Fry Light and cook the onion and rice for 5-6 minutes. Add a ladeleful of stock and the mixed herbs and stir until the liquid has been absorbed. Continue to cook in this manner adding a ladleful of stock each time the liquid has been absorbed.

    Yes, this is my favourite! Stir in some fresh spinach at the end too, and a bit of parmesan if you fancy spending a healthy extra. Yums.
