Creamy leek risotto

    A really tasty supper dish, and easy to cook. If you prefer meat with your meal, or you want to make this more substantial, then add in some chopped chicken or ham. Peas and asparagus also go well in this recipe.

    • 10g butter (optional)

    • 3 to 4 leeks, chopped

    1. Heat butter and oil, and gently fry leeks and onion until translucent. Stir frequently - don't allow to brown. Will take about 10 minutes.
    2. Add rice and stir. Once all the rice is coated, stir continuously for 2 to 3 minutes, then add a couple of tablespoons stock.
    3. Once stock has been absorbed, add a little more. Repeat, until all the stock has been absorbed and the rice has cooked through, about 20 to 30 minutes.
    4. Remove from heat, and stir in the cream cheese and grind in black pepper to taste. Serve.
