Serves: 4 Time: 20 minutes

  • 4 Spring Onions, chopped

  • 1 Garlic Clove, finely chopped

  • 275g Arborio Rice

  • 1L Vegetable Stock

  • 400g Tin Cannellini Beans, drained

  • 225g Frozen Peas, thawed

  • Zest of 1 Lemon

  • 50g Rocket


  • 1 Sourdough Slice

  • Handful of Parsley

  • Fresh or Chilli Flakes, to taste (optional)

  • 25g Parmesan


  1. To make the topping, put the sourdough, parsley and chilli in a blender and whiz until rough breadcrumbs. Stir in the parmesan and set aside.

  2. In a large non-stick pan, heat the oil and saute the onions and garlic over a medium heat for a few mins until softened. Add the dry rice, stir to coat in the oil, then cook for a few min. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable stock in another large pan.
