Creamy risotto swirled through with pumpkin soup, fresh spinach, tangy feta and smoked almonds!
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Heat oil in a frypan over medium high heat. Add onion, rosemary and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened.
Add rice and mix to coat each grain in oil and heat through.
Transfer to prepared baking dish.
Return pan to high heat. Add soup and a can-full of water (500ml). Bring to the boil.
Remove and pour over rice mixture. Stir to combine cover with the lid or foil and bake, stirring halfway, for 40mins, adding the nuts on a tray on a rack underneath in the last 15 minutes, or until rice is cooked through and nuts are toasted.
