A simple recipe to score points with at a dinner party, but also to eat on the couch on a lazy weekend day. I won’t spend any more time convincing you: you should just try this recipe!

Low FODMAP spinach pesto risotto. Very easy, but you will definitely score points with this at a diner party. Gluten-free, low lactose and vegetarian.
- 160 g (5.6 oz) risotto rice
- 450–500 (1.9 – 2.1 cups) ml stock (make sure to check the ingredients for FODMAPs)

- 35 g (1/4 cup) pine nuts
- 1.5–2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 40 g (2/5 cup) parmesan cheese

- Optional: 100 g canned mushrooms (contrary to normal mushrooms, canned mushrooms are low FODMAP up to 100 g per portion)
- For the pesto: put the spinach, pine nuts, olive oil, lemon juice, parmesan cheese, pepper and salt into a foodprocessor (or use a handblender) and make it into a pesto. Taste and season with some extra pepper, salt and lemon juice if necessary. Add some more olive oil if the pesto is too thick.
- Heat some butter in a pan.
- Add the risotto rice and stir until the rice is glazed.
- Add a spoonful of stock. Stir until all the stock has evaporated.
- Repeat this process until you have used all the stock and the risotto is cooked.
