Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Deseed the red and yellow peppers (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips

Add the chopped pepper to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!) with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt

Put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min until roasted and golden

2 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

Meanwhile, boil a full kettle

Peel and finely dice the red onion[s]

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.4L] boiled water, then add the tomato paste, Chinese wine and chilli jam – this is your sweet tomato stock

3 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

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

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

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

4 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

Add the arborio rice, chopped garlic, smoked paprika and ground turmeric to the pan and cook for 1 min further

5 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

Add 1/3 of the sweet tomato stock and stir continuously with a wooden spoon until absorbed

Continue to add the stock, a ladle at a time, stirring continuously for 15-20 min, until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked – this is your risotto

6 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

Meanwhile, chop the chives finely

Grate the cheddar cheese

7 Smoky Pepper & Chive Risotto

Once roasted, remove the peppers from the oven

Stir half of the roast peppers into the risotto and reserve the remainder for garnish
