Jamie says: “I love this quick, simple one-pan dish with a passion – it’s a crowd-pleaser, bringing Italy and Provence together. Purists may judge the frozen veg base hack, but they’re missing out!” See method

  1. Tip the frozen veg into a large, deep pan on a medium-high heat with 2 tbsp olive oil. Cook for 10 mins or until soft, stirring regularly, then remove half to a bowl.
  2. Add the rice to the pan and stir for 2 mins. Add a good splash of hot stock and wait until it’s been fully absorbed before adding another. Repeat, stirring constantly, for 16-18 mins or until the rice is perfectly cooked, adding extra splashes of water, if needed.
  3. Pick and finely slice most of the basil leaves and stir into the pan with the reserved veg, most of the goat’s cheese and 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil; season. Adjust the consistency with a splash of boiling kettle water, if needed, so it’s nice and oozy.
  4. Divide between plates, then scatter over the remaining basil leaves and goat’s cheese to finish.
