    excellent recipe i didnt have Broad beans so I used thawed peas and corn. I folded them in during rest period and they didnt actually need any thermie cooking. The risotto did the cooking for the veg during rest period I also added the spinach during the last minute of rest so it wouldnt "over wilt" perfect!
