Garlicky Prawns and Green Pea Risotto

So I’m 3 weeks in and half a stone lighter! 1 stone to go to get to target so my eyes are on the prize!
However tonight I was craving something stodgy so I decided to make a luxury risotto.
I am aware that you can make a risotto with less syns by not using any wine however I think it’s worth it!
Let me know what you think

Serves 2
ingredients
150g Rissotto rice
Large glass of white wine
400mls good quality chicken stock
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
Cooked prawns
Handful of frozen peas
Fry light/ cooking spray
Lemon

step 1
Heat a large heavy pan on a low heat and spray pan with fry light.
Finely chop garlic and onion and add to pan.

step 2
Cook onions and garlic slowly until soft.
Add the rice and stir until rice becomes translucent.

step 3
Add the wine and continue to stir until all the wine has absorbed. Add a ladle full of stock.

step 4
Continue to stir the risotto and adding a ladle of stock and waiting for it to be absorbed.

step 5
When two thirds of the stock have been added stir in the peas

step 6
Continue to add the stock until its all been absorbed, the rice is cooked and the risotto is a silky texture. If you need more liquid use hot water.

step 7
Stir in prawns and leave to warm through.

Serve up with a squeeze of lemon and enjoy!
