Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the diced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 4 min or until softened but not coloured

2 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.4L] boiled water - this is your vegetable stock

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

3 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

Add the arborio rice and half of the chopped garlic into the softened onion and cook for 1 min, stirring to coat the grains in the oil

Tip: Add a drizzle more oil if your pan is looking a little dry

Add the vegetable stock, a ladle at a time, stirring continuously for 20-25 min or until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked

4 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

While the risotto is cooking, grate the cheddar cheese

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks

Chop the courgette[s] into bite-sized pieces

5 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

Zest 1/2 [1] lemon (try to grate lightly with a micro-plane or sharp box grater and avoid grating the white pith, as this is very bitter!) and set aside for garnish

Cut the lemon[s] in half

6 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

Once the rice is cooked, squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon

Tip: Use the halves that you've already zested!

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges

Add a very large knob of butter and the grated cheddar to the pan and stir to combine

Season with a generous pinch of both salt and pepper – this is your lemony risotto

7 Lemony Courgette & King Prawn Risotto

Heat a separate, large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a large knob of butter over a medium-high heat

Once melted, add the remaining garlic, chopped courgette and king prawns with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until the prawns are cooked through – these are your garlic prawns and courgettes

Once cooked, remove from the heat and stir through the chopped parsley
