Tomato risotto has become a staple in our household. Not only is it quick, it's also an easy way to get 1 of your 5 daily veg requirements in, and get children to eat vegetables they usually wouldn't touch!
It's also completely adaptable to most dietary requirements. This recipe is meat-free, but we like to add chicken in to ours - simply fry this with the onions and garlic until golden. It is also gluten-free as long as you use gluten free-stock. Finally, it can be dairy-free by either adding dairy-free cheese or completely missing this step, as it works equally well without it.
Prep and cook time: approx. 30 minutes
