SW recipe: Mushroom Risotto

Free, serves 4


  • 15g dried mushrooms
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 375g chestnut mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 250g dried risotto rice
  • 1.2 litres boiling vegetable stock
  • 4 tbsp plain quark
  • Small bag fresh rocket leaves, to serve


  1. Soak the dried mushrooms in 150ml boiling water for 20 minutes.
  2. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and chestnut mushrooms and cook for 5-6 minutes, adding 1 tbsp water occasionally if the pan starts to look a little dry.
  3. Add the garlic, rice, dried mushrooms and all but the last tsp of the soaking liquid (which will be gritty) and cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat the rice well. Pour in the stock and season with freshly ground black pepper, then increase the heat to high and bring to the boil.
  4. Tip the mixture into the slow-cooker pot, cover and cook on low for 3 hours or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is temptingly creamy. (You might need to cook it for another 15 minutes or so.) Remove from the heat, stir in the quark and top with rocket to serve.


Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
