Method

Pea Puree:
Step 1
To make the pea puree put Wattie's® Garden Peas, butter and stock in a microwave proof bowl. Cover.
Step 2
Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, until peas are hot.
Step 3
Place peas and cooking liquid into a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Set aside.
Risotto:
Step 1
Heat chicken stock until almost boiling. Set aside.
Step 2
Heat a dash of oil in a large saucepan. Add sliced leek and cook over a medium heat until leek starts to soften but not brown. Add rice and stir until the grains whiten.
Step 3
Pour in wine and allow to reduce by half. Add 2 cups of hot stock and stir. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.
Step 4
Stir in Wattie's® Garden Peas. Continue cooking for a further 5 minutes, adding extra stock if necessary until rice is tender. Carefully stir through prepared pea puree, lemon zest and juice and crumbled feta. Season to taste.

Tips

For a vegetarian option replace chicken stock with vegetable stock.
Try adding smoked salmon, chicken or prawns for tasty variations.
Any remaining stock can be frozen in a covered plastic container.
Replace feta with parmesan if desired.
