  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • 4 sage leaves, shredded, or pinch dried
  • 85g risotto rice
  • small glass white wine
  • 200ml hot vegetable stock
  • 2-3 rashers streaky bacon
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan


  1. Heat the oil in a pan, add the leeks and sage and fry for 2 mins until the leeks are starting to soften. Stir in the rice and cook for 1 min, stirring. Add the wine and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 mins until the rice is tender.
