Mushroom Risotto


  • 2 handfuls of arborio rice
  • mushrooms
  • 2 onions 
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • splash of cider vinegar
  • mixed herbs 
  • 1 heaped tablespoon stock 

Usually I would add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast but I ran out of it making vegan parmesan (it was worth it) to top the risotto. I found this recipe in Vegan on the cheap recipe book. Which all you need to do is pop nutritional yeast, ground almonds and a pinch of salt into a blender then whiz. To start the risotto, fry mushrooms and onions in a large frying/risotto pan. Once softened add the rice and a little oil, stir in herbs and garlic and splash in the cider vinegar cooking for a few minutes. Then I added the stock powder to the mix and poured boiled water over the rice to cover and bring to the boil stirring regularly. I may have covered the rice 4 times with water until creamy. Now my chocolate treat! I bought this today from The Unicorn Grocery. This is one on my favourite chocolates to eat, it is perfect! Its a Raw Chocolate Pie with himalayan salt bar! Wow, every time I eat one I say I could have one of these each day for the rest of my life. Really should branch out to other flavours but I keep going back to this one. Maybe one day I will treat myself to a gift or bulk pack they do and try not to eat them all in one go!
