What you need
What you need
Tube of Primula Cheese 'n' Prawns
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped finely

  • 400g risotto rice
  • 140g tube Primula Cheese ‘n’ Prawns

How you do it
How you do it
  • Bring the stock to the boil and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
  • In a separate large pan, add the olive oil, onion and garlic. Gently fry for 5 to 6 minutes until softened.
  • Add the risotto rice to the onions and cook for 1 minute. Stir continuously to stop the rice from sticking to the pan.
  • Add a ladle of the simmering stock and gently simmer until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice. Repeat 15-20 times until the rice is cooked. (You may not need to use all the stock.)
  • Meanwhile, slice a courgette length ways – the slices should be approximately 5mm thick. Lightly brush them with oil olive and a sprinkling of salt. Place a griddle pan over a high heat sear the courgette for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • Add the Primula Cheese ‘n’ Prawns and stir through to make a beautifully creamy coating.
    Place a lid over the pan and allow to sit for 2 minutes.
  • Gently stir the risotto and serve.
