Leek and lemon risotto


Serves 4

1.5L water
2 stock cubes
2 Tbsp canola oil
1 leek, washed and chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup risotto rice (or medium grain rice)
1 Tbsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp lemon juice
capsicum strips for garnish


Bring water to the boil and add stock cubes.
In a separate saucepan heat oil and gently cook leek and garlic until soft.
Increase heat and add rice, continuing to cook for 2 minutes.
Add stock to the rice, one cup at a time, stirring often. Wait until most of the stock has been absorbed before adding the next cup.
Continue to add stock until the rice is cooked through and has a thick consistency.
Add a little more or a little less stock to get the desired consistency.
Add lemon zest and juice and stir through.
Serve garnished with capsicum strips.
