Pea Pesto Risotto

Gluten-Free, Vegan, Serves 2

  • ⅔  cup Peas Frozen
  • ½  cup Spinach
  • ¼  cup Walnuts
  • ½  cup Watercress
  • 2 Tbsp Vegan Parmesan
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 6 green onions sliced
  • ⅔  cup Risotto Rice
  • Juice and zest of half a lemon
  • 2 cup Vegetable Stock

Directions:

Cook the peas in boiling water for 2 minutes and drain. Transfer half of the cooked peas, spinach, watercress, all of the walnuts, vegan parmesan, 2 Tbsp water, salt, and pepper to taste. Heat the olive oil in a pan with garlic and onions. Cook stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. Garlic and onions should be soft but not browned. Stir in rice and lemon zest. Add a ladleful of hot stock to the pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the stock has been absorbed. Repeat the process until the stock is gone. This should take 15-20 minutes. Once all of the stock is gone, stir in the lemon juice, pea puree, and the reserved peas. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top the risotto with the remaining watercress, spinach, and more parmesan.
