Using a few simple ingredients, this Nutricook recipe is one of my favourites. Try to use fresh peas as the taste and texture complements the fresh mint and lime.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ½ cups Arborio rice
  • 4 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup of fresh peas

Directions

  • 1
    Using the sauté function on the Nutricook heat the pot.
  • 2
    Add butter and heat until melted.
  • 3
    Add shallots and sauté for five minutes until softened.
  • 4
    Next, the garlic and rice, stir for a minute.
  • 5
    Next, add one cup of stock: stir for 3 minutes until the rice absorbs it.
  • 6
    Add the remaining stock and season.
  • 7
    Place the lid and lock with the pressure valve closed.
  • 8
    Set the manual button and set to 8 minutes. When the programme is complete, remove the lid and stir in the lime zest, mint, and peas.
  • 9
    Leave the pot on warm for a few minutes until peas are heated.
