Recipe: Spinach and Goat’s Cheese Risotto

Late last week I had a huge craving for risotto and realised I hadn’t made any in months, so set about changing that quick smart. I like to keep mine simple on the ingredient front (but not on the flavour front!) so went with spinach and goat’s cheese, and it definitely hit the mark!

Ingredients List

  • Onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cups of arborio rice
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • Spinach
  • Goat’s cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste



  1. Dice the onion and garlic
  2. Pour the stock into a saucepan, bring to the boil then turn to a simmer
  3. Heat some oil in another saucepan and cook the onion and garlic for 5 minutes
  4. Add the rice and coat with the onion and garlic
  5. Pour in the wine and stir until absorbed
  6. Gradually add the stock a ladle at a time, stirring until absorbed
  7. Once all stock has been absorbed mix through the spinach and goat’s cheese
  8. Season with salt and pepper and serve
  9. Enjoy!

    I’m not really a fan of risotto but I do love your spinach and goats cheese flavour combo, just lovely!

      Thanks! It’s not something I make often (probably because it’s so often one of the only vegetarian options at restaurants!) but every now and again I get the urge to give it another whirl!

    This is just what I need to replenish my carb supplies! (although I did have quite a big chunk out of the heavy multigrain sourdough I bought this morning!) We’ve been eating goat’s feta this week – it’s so creamy and smooth and has that unmistakable goat’s cheese tang. I would love to taste it in risotto..

      This was the first time I had used goat’s cheese in a risotto but it worked well. It mixes in well so you get the delicious flavour in every bite! Congrats again on making it through the week – impressive effort from you both!
