Step 2. Stir in the rice to coat it with the onion and mushroom mixture. Pour in the wine and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes, occasionally stirring, until the wine is completely absorbed.
Step 3. Reduce to a mild heat. Add the 125ml/ 4fl oz of the stock and the tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed. Pour 125ml/4fl oz stock and continue cooking until fully absorbed. Repeat with the remaining stock until absorbed and the rice is tender and creamy.
Step 4. Stir in half the parmesan and the parsley and season to taste. Scatter the spinach over the risotto. Cover and cook lightly for 4-5 minutes until the spinach has wilted. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the remaining parmesan.
