Get great taste without spending hours stirring by the stove – use Boosh Rosemary & Thyme Organic Chicken Bone Broth in our creamy and comforting mushroom and leek risotto recipe.

Perfect for an easy mid-week meal, our recipe for this popular dish requires little effort to achieve a satisfying and tasty supper. In our twist on this classic Italian recipe we’ve replaced the stock with Boosh Rosemary & Thyme Organic Chicken Bone Broth to add an extra depth of flavour.

Recipe serves 2


1 cup (250ml) risotto rice
1 x 350ml jar of Boosh Rosemary & Thyme Organic Chicken Bone Broth – available from, Ocado, and Amazon
200g mushrooms, sliced
1 large leek, sliced
1 large onion, finely chopped
2oz butter
½ tsp curry powder
1 tsp mixed herbs
Salt to taste
1-2 tbsp cream cheese or mascarpone (optional)


  1. Melt the butter in a pan on a medium heat and fry the onions until translucent.
  2. Add the curry powder, mixed herbs and salt. Mix together and cook on a low heat for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the rice and then cook on a low heat for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the Boosh Rosemary & Thyme Organic Chicken Bone Broth, mushrooms and leek. Bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling, turn down the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the stock has been fully absorbed.
  6. Check the rice is fully cooked. If it isn’t add a splash of boiling water and carry on cooking for a bit.
  7. Once the rice is soft enough to eat, add cream cheese if using (for an extra creamy risotto), stir and heat through for 2-3 minutes.

All great things come to an end. And BOOSH is one of them.

Due to the difficulties of importing from Europe post Brexit and the ever increasing costs we are faced with, we have reluctantly decided to stop trading for the foreseeable future. The plan was always to move manufacturing to the UK. We are still looking for alternative solutions, yet there still remain many challenges abound.

We've loved creating Boosh bone broth and together we have succeeded in spreading around its benefits. Thank you for being part of this fantastic journey. Boosh bone broths will continue to be sold on Ocado (while stock lasts). 

Feel everyday wonderful. ️Love from the Boosh Foods team x
