  • 1 packet of Goodlife Cauliflower & Mature Cheddar Cheese Sausages with Truffle Oil
  • 25g of dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 stick celery
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 500g Arborio rice (risotto rice)
  • 200ml white wine (optional)
  • 1.25 litres of hot vegetable stock
  • 40g butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1 Soak the mushrooms in 200ml of boiling water for ten minutes.

2 Chop the onion and celery and garlic into a small dice, you could do this in the food processor to save time.

3 Fry the onion, celery and garlic in the oil very slowly, on a low heat for 7-8 minutes - don’t allow to colour.

4 Turn up the heat and add the rice, stir for 30 seconds and coat the rice in the vegetable mixture.

5 Add a small amount of the hot vegetable stock and stir until evaporated, add the wine at this point, if you choose, and again stir until the wine has been absorbed.

6 Drain the mushrooms, reserving the liquid, and add the mushroom liquid to the risotto.Be aware that the mushroom stock can be a bit grainy at the bottom so don’t tip all the liquid in.

7 Chop the sausages into four pieces and add to the pan, add the stock a little at a time, stirring occasionally, until it is all gone. This should take approximately 20 minutes.

8 The sausages will break apart and impart a delicious flavour into you risotto. Add the butter and stir through the risotto.

9 Season to taste and check the rice is cooked. Garnish with rocket and serve.
