  • Preheat the oven to 200c
  • Heat the water with the stock in a pan, once hot lower the heat
  • Finely chop the garlic and roughly slice the leek
  • In a large pan heat the oil, add the garlic and leek
  • Fry on a low to medium heat, this will take a while but the leek needs to be on a low heat as it burns easily
  • Once the leek is soft add the rice and mix well
  • Add the wine and mix well again
  • Allow the wine to reduce by half
  • Add the rosemary either whole or chopped finely, depending on your preference
  • Add the stock 1/2 a cup at a time, allowing it to be absorbed almost completely before adding the next
  • This process may take 30 minutes or so
  • Once the rice is cooked add salt to taste
  • Cut the top off the peppers and remove the seeds and the bitter membrane
  • Fill with the risotto, wrap each in foil and bake for 30 minutes
  • Toast the pine nuts and scatter on top
