Tip

If you do not need to be dairy free you can replace the savoury yeast flakes with parmesan cheese.

For even more flavour, use Portobello mushrooms. If your children do not like obvious slices of mushroom, add the mushrooms halved or quartered (depending on size) before step 1 and chop 5 seconds speed 4. Repeat if preferred. Perfect for kids.

If you want this recipe to be even quicker with prep, throw in roughly torn up bacon and blitz it with the leek and garlic.

Leaving the risotto to rest in the thermoserver at the end will allow it to cook a bit further, soak up a bit more liquid and wilt the spinach leaves. To give you an idea of quantity, this does enough for two meals each for both of my children (5 and 7) and lunch each for my husband and I. UPDATE: Next time I make this I plan on doing a mixture of blitzing and large dicing the mushrooms, so blitzing some at the beginning then adding a few large diced later on, to help get the kids use to the idea of munching on mushrooms.

    can you help? I made leek and potato soup from the EDC book and is bitter! Tastes like raw onion/leek. Don't know what to do to correct the flavour. Is definitively cooked!

    which part of the leek did you use ?  all recipes I have seen say to only use the white.

    Made this tonight as a quick throw together meal and it was delicious - Hubby who is a bit over risotto (lol can you guess what my new go to meal is) asked for leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
