LEEK, CHESTNUT & WILD MUSHROOM RISOTTO

Tonight i cooked this very earthy winter risotto. 

The ingredients were all store cupboard items and are: wild mushrooms, 1 Leek, Chestnuts, risotto rice & white wine. 

I soaked the dried mushrooms in boiling water for 20 mins then i fried the Leek and added the rice adding a little wine at a time when it was soaked up. 

Later i added the mushrooms & chestnuts and used the mushroom water as stock to add to the rice. I also added a pinch of dried thyme.
