Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups (200g) Arborio rice
  • 4 cups (1 litre) boiling vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 1 medium leek, diced
  • 1 fresh red chilli, diced
  • 500g medium prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 250g small scallops
  • 430g fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 red capsicum, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the rice and stir until the rice is coated in oil and has started to toast; 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in one-third of the boiling vegetable stock; continue stirring until incorporated. Repeat this process twice more, stirring constantly. Incorporating the stock should take 15 to 20 minutes in all.
  3. While you are cooking the rice heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large frypan. Stir in the garlic, leeks, red chilli, prawns and scallops. Cook until the seafood is just beginning to turn colour. Add the red capsicum and spinach; cook until the seafood is opaque.
  4. Combine with the rice and season to taste with pepper.
