Tomato and Prawn Risotto

I winged it tonight and made another easy Olivia recipe, it was delicious.

You will need (feeds 3/4):

1 red onion (finely chopped)
2 spring onions (chopped)
2 large tomatoes (chopped into 8)
1/3 bag of risotto rice
1 litre vegetable stock
1 cup white wine
2 handfuls peas
as many uncooked king prawns as you like (or can afford)
chilli flakes to taste
salt and pepper

Fry the onions in a little vegetable oil till soft, then add the rice and stir until it's coated with oil. Add the wine and cook on a medium heat until the wine has soaked in. Then start gradually adding the vegetable stock (don't over pour), and let the rice soak it up. After 5 minutes, add the tomatoes, they will add extra juice so be careful not to over do it with the stock. After about 10/12 minutes, when the rice is almost cooked, add the peas, king prawns, seasoning and chilli. The tomatoes keep the risotto very moist and make it taste so healthy. It would be good with chicken too. Enjoy!
