What you need:

1tsp vegetable oil
1 bunch spring onions, trimmed and chopped
300g risotto rice
1 garlic clove, crushed
200g mushrooms, sliced
900ml (1 ½ pints) hot vegetable stock
75g frozen peas, thawed
Ground black pepper

What you do:

Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan or saucepan and cook the spring onions over a medium-high heat for a few seconds. Add the rice and cook over a low heat for about 1 min, stirring all the time until the rice looks glossy but not brown.

Add the garlic and mushrooms, then pour in about half the hot stock and stir well. Cook over a medium heat for 20-25 mins, stirring often and gradually and adding the remaining stock a little at a time until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.

Check that the rice is tender. It should have a nice creamy texture. If it needs cooking for a bit longer, add a little more hot water.
Add the peas, stirring gently to mix them in. Check the seasoning, adding some pepper if needed.

Serve.
