Each box of risotto contains a seasoning packet, but you’ll need only one for this recipe; save the other for flavoring soup stock or another grain dish. If boxed Creamy Parmesan Risotto isn’t available, purchase two regular-flavor risotto boxes; use 2 tablespoons butter instead of 1 tablespoon olive oil in step 2, and stir in ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese in step 3.
Mushroom and Spinach Risotto
2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
½ cup thinly sliced leeks (half-moon slices), rinsed thoroughly
8 ounces sliced baby bella mushrooms
2 boxes Lundberg Organic Risotto Creamy Parmesan (flavor packets removed)
2 cups So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Beverage, Original
3 cups warm water
3 cups baby spinach
Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish
- In a heavy, 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add leeks and cook for 1 minute, until softened. Add mushrooms and cook for 2–3 minutes, until fragrant.
- Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon oil and Lundberg Organic Risotto rice. Add coconut milk beverage, water and one pouch of risotto seasoning (save second pouch for another use). Stir, cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, uncovered, for 18–22 minutes.
- Stir in spinach. Serve immediately, garnished with grated Parmesan if desired.
