• 6 tbsp Kerrygold Original Irish Butter, divided
  • 5 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 cup uncooked arborio rice
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Kerrygold Mature Cheddar
  • 100g baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • A squeeze of lemon
  • Fresh garlic chives, chopped
  • 1 tbsp mixed Italian herbs
  • Salt & pepper to taste

1. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a pan and saute the onions for 5 minutes. Add the rice and 4 garlic cloves and cook for a further minute or two.

2. Season with mixed herbs and some pepper. If using wine, add-in now. Otherwise, start gradually adding the stock, starting with 1 cup.

3. Continue stirring the rice to ensure it does not stick to the pan and allow it to soak up all the stock before adding more. Continue to gradually add stock until it is done. Adjust the seasoning only after you've added all your stock.

4. Once the risotto is done you can fold in the cheese and chopped chives.

5. In a separate pan, prepare the mushrooms with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and the remaining clove of garlic. Saute for 8-10 minutes and add the spinach at the last minute.

6. Either mix the mushroom and spinach into the risotto mixture or add on the top. Drizzle over freshly squeezed lemon juice and serve warm.
