This is a lovely risotto that's quick to throw together and makes a perfect use for your left over rice. You could also use dried herbs but I think the fresh ones are so much better.

- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 bunch spring onions or 1 large onion, sliced

I really loved this recipe it has become one of my specialties, but I use angle hair pasta instead of rice. I usually only use rice for asian dishes. The ingredients were great though, and it's super easy. Tawnya
