Ingredients1 tbsp olive oil
1 x 500g pack leeks, trimmed and sliced
500ml (17fl oz) reduced salt vegetable stock
300g (10oz) arborio rice
500g (1lb) smoked haddock, skinned and cut into chunks
150g (5oz) lighter soft cheese with garlic and herbs


In a large pan, heat the oil and gently cook the leeks for 5 minutes, or until soft.

Meanwhile, in a separate lidded pan, heat the stock with 500ml (17fl oz) water. Once the leeks are soft, stir in the rice and cook for a couple of minutes, then pour in the hot stock. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring often, until the rice is al dente and the liquid has been absorbed.
Stir in the haddock and soft cheese. Cover, reduce the heat and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and the texture is to your liking. To serve, season with freshly ground black pepper.
