Vegan ‘Chicken’ Risotto

'Chicken' Risotto

We love risotto, it's really filling and comforting! The best thing is, you throw everything into one pan so hardly any washing up.

Servings: 3 people


  • 1 litre vegan bouillon or stock
  • 300 g risotto rice
  • 80 g sweetcorn
  • 60 g onion
  • 40 g peas
  • 4 spears asparagus
  • 3 tbsp vegan cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 handful chicken-style faux meat (Linda Maccartney pulled chicken works well. You can leave this out if you're not a fan of faux meat!)
  • 1 tsp garlic puree
  • 1 pinch salt and cracked black pepper


  • Add the rice, sweetcorn, onion, asparagus, peas, and 'chicken', to a wide pan.
  • Add around 600ml of the bouillon to your pan and put on a moderate heat (it should be simmering constantly). Keep stirring so you don't get too much sticking!
  • The risotto will be absorbing your stock constantly. If it starts to get dry, add more of your bouillon in 100ml increments.
  • The rice should be softening, with the veggies mostly cooked through, after about 20 minutes. Add your mustard, nutritional yeast, garlic, and cream cheese, and mix in. Leave for another 5 minutes or so, and give it a taste test before serving.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
