1 (14 oz) can vegetable broth
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup Arborio rice
1 cup frozen baby sweet peas
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 cups chopped fresh spinach
2 tbsp grated Parmesan
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1. In a medium saucepan, bring to a boil broth and 1 3/4 cups water. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover.

2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until tender. Add uncooked rice and stir until rice starts to turn golden in parts, about 5 min.

3. Add 1 cup hot broth mixture to the rice, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir until liquid is absorbed. Add another 2 cups broth, 1/2 cups at a time, to rice. Cook and stir until liquid is absorbed, 18 to 20 min.

4. Stir in remaining broth, peas and carrot. Stir until rice is slightly creamy and just tender.

5. Remove from heat and quickly stir in spinach, Parmesan, thyme and pepper. Serve immediately.
