Get Prepped

Trim and discard the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways, then thinly slice widthways. 

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Pour the water for the stock (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan on high heat. Add the veg stock paste, stir to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to the lowest setting. This is your veg stock.

Start your Risotto

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, wide-bottomed saucepan on medium heat.

Once hot, add the sliced leek and fry until softened, 4-5 mins. Stir occasionally.

Stir in the garlic and tomato puree (and a drizzle more oil if it's a bit dry). Stir and cook for 1 min.

Add the risotto rice, stir and cook until the edges of the rice are translucent, 1-2 mins.

Next, add the cider vinegar and allow it to evaporate, 30 secs.

Ladle and Stir

Stir a ladle of stock into the rice pan. When the stock has been absorbed by the rice, stir in another ladle of stock.

Keep the pan on medium heat and continue stirring in stock, letting it absorb each time.

The cooking time should take 20-25 mins and your risotto is done when your rice is ‘al dente’ - cooked through but with a tiny bit of firmness left in the middle.

Cook the Prawns

When the risotto has almost 6 mins left, drain the prawns.

Stir the prawns into the risotto and cook until tender, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

Finishing Touches

Once cooked, remove your risotto from the heat and add the hard Italian style cheese and a knob of butter (if you have any).

Stir vigorously until the cheese and butter have melted. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel the risotto is looking a little dry.


Serve your prawn and tomato risotto between your bowls.

Finish by scattering the chilli flakes over the top (add less if you'd prefer things milder).
