QUICK TOMATO RISOTTO
1 risotto mix in a jar
1 small onion
2 tbsp olive oil
½ cup white wine
4 ¼ cups mild soup
1 handful of grated (vegan) cheese (optional)
Chop the onion into small cubes. Heat the olive oil in a pan or pot over medium heat and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the risotto mix and sauté briefly. Deglaze with white wine. When the wine has boiled away, pour in hot soup until the rice is just covered. Simmer gently, stirring, and pour again when the soup has boiled away. Repeat until rice is cooked but still has a little bite. Optionally, stir in the cheese. Remove the finished risotto from the heat and let rest for two minutes, then serve. Enjoy!
