What you need:

This was brilliant, and soooo easy! I used red peppers, broccoli and Quorn chunks, and I added a can of mushroom soup. Hubby loved it and wants it again. This one's definitely a keeper!  ;)b


So I made this the other night and thought it was fantastic.  It did take longer to cook than the recipe stated but maybe that's because I used basmati rice (that's all I had in!).

I used butternut squash, onion, leek, garlic and sweetcorn - these worked great.  I loved the use of the vegan parmasan in it - I'd never thought of using it in risotto before (d'oh!).

A nice simple recipe.  One I'm sure I'll cook again.  Thank you.


can someone please point me in the right directin for the mushroom gravy mentioned above - the link doesn't work for me (maybe it's too old or something!)

I really want to try this recipe as it looks quick & tasty, but now I really want to try it with the mushroom gravy otherwise I'll feel like I'm missing out!  ::)


I love this.  I use the gravy recipe above and put in 1/4 cup wild rice and 3/4 brown.  I've made this quite a few times and it turns out great every time
