For the risotto

750ml/1¼ pints low FODMAP vegetable stock

25g/1oz lactose free unsalted butter

3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only

200g/7oz risotto rice

200ml/7fl oz white wine

200g/7oz zucchini, trimmed, cut into 1cm/½in cubes

4 heaped tbsp grated parmesan, plus extra to serve

1 unwaxed lemon, finely grated zest, plus 1 tbsp lemon juice

salt and freshly ground black pepper


Bring the stock to a simmer in a saucepan, then keep warm over a low-medium heat.

Heat the lactose free butter in a large, heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat.

Add the rice and stir well until it is coated in the melted butter. Add the wine, thyme and simmer until it has almost evaporated.

Add a couple of ladlefuls of the hot stock to the pan, bringing each to a simmer and stirring regularly, until the rice has absorbed most of the liquid.

Continue to add the stock a little at a time, stirring the rice regularly.

When half of the stock has been added to the rice, stir in the zucchini, then continue to add the remaining stock until the rice is tender but has a slight bite ̶ about 15-18 minutes total cooking time.

Stir in the parmesan, lemon zest and lemon juice (to taste). Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve in bowls, sprinkled with more grated parmesan.
