  • Heat Flora and olive oil in a large pan and fry the onion and garlic until soft but not browned.
  • Add the rice and stir well. Pour in the wine and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and cook gently, whilst stirring, until the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Stir in 300ml stock and repeat until the stock has been absorbed.
  • Add half the remaining stock, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally until the risotto has a creamy consistency.
  • Add the peas to the rice together with the asparagus and remaining stock. Bring back to a simmer and continue stirring as the liquid is absorbed and the rice becomes tender.
  • Stir in the spinach, with a little more stock if necessary, and sprinkle in the cheese, stirring until melted through.
  • Season to taste and serve straight away.
