Ingredients

  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 300g mixed mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 200g mixed basmati rice and wild rice
  • zest and juice 1 lemon
  • small bunch snipped chives
  • 6 tbsp light soft cheese with garlic and herbs

Method

  1. Put 2 tbsp of the stock in a non-stick pan, then cook the onion for 5 mins until softened – add a splash more stock if it starts to dry out. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook for 2 mins more. Add the rice and lemon zest and juice, mixing well. Pour in remaining stock and seasoning and bring to the boil. Turn down, cover and simmer for 25-30 mins until rice is tender. Stir through half each of the chives and soft cheese, then serve topped with the remaining chives and soft cheese.
