Ingredients

  • 80 ml (2 1/2 fl oz/ 1/3 cup) olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into small pieces
  • 125 g (4 1/2 oz) young green beans, trimmed and cut into small pieces
  • 100 g (3 1/2 oz) sugar snap peas, trimmed and halved
  • 80 g (2 3/4 oz/1/2 cup) fresh or frozen peas
  • 1.25 litres (44 fl oz/5 cups) vegetable or chicken stock
  • 180 g (6 1/4 oz/3/4 cup) dried risoni
  • 85 g (3 oz/ 1/3 cup) pesto

Method

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over low-medium heat and gently cook the onion, celery and garlic until soft.

2. Divide the asparagus, beans, sugar snap peas and peas into two separate bowls. Add half of the vegetables to the saucepan and cook for 3-4 minutes.

3. Pour in the stock, bring to the boil and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes.

4. Blend the vegetables and stock with a stick blender. Add the risoni and cook, uncovered, for approximately 7 minutes (or 3 minutes less than the recommended cooking time on the packet instructions).

5. Add the remaining vegetables, cook for 3-4 minutes, then season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

6. Divide among warmed bowls and serve topped with the pesto.
