Cheesy Rice

I know, it sounds grim but it's actually very nice, quick and simple. I'm not keen on risotto - I know I should like it, but for me - it's the texture. I don't like rice pudding either - a great shame! This rice dish is drier so there's no slimy texture!

1 onion, chopped finely
1 cup of Basmati rice
1½ cups of stock
splash of dry white wine
teaspoon of Marmite
grated parmesan cheese
knob of butter

Fry the onion gently in olive oil and butter until soft and translucent. Wash the rice in cold water and add to the onion, cook for a couple of minutes. Add the spalsh of wine and let the alcohol evaporate off slightly, then add the stock, Marmite and season to taste. Put a lid on the pan and turn the heat right down and cook for 15 mins, until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked. Gently fork through the rice and add the butter and cheese. Serve with a green salad!
