Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

2 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

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 and cook for 3 min or until softened but not coloured

3 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Meanwhile, dissolve the veg stock mix in 600ml [1.2L] boiled water and add the saffron, then leave to infuse

4 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Once the onion has softened, add the chopped garlic, arborio rice and chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 1 min, stirring to coat the grains in the oil

Add 1/3 of the saffron stock and stir continuously with a wooden spoon until it has been absorbed

Add the saffron stock a ladle at a time, stirring continuously for 25-30 min or until all of the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked

5 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

While the rice is cooking, slice the lemon[s] in half

Add the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon to a large mixing bowl and add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and whisk to combine – this is your lemon dressing

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges for serving

6 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Once the risotto is ready, remove it from the heat and season with a pinch of salt

Tip: Your risotto should be porridge-like in consistency so if it is looking a little dry, add a splash of water

Stir the crab meat and the clotted cream through the risotto – this is your saffron, crab & clotted cream risotto

7 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Wash, then dress the rocket with the lemon dressing – this is your dressed salad
