Quick and Easy Tomato Basil Risotto

What you need: 

1 cup of fast cooking risotto rice (the kind I have takes 15 minutes)
1 can of tomato soup mixed with 1 1/2 cups water
some frozen spinach
about a tablespoon or more of basil
some garlic powder
any other spice you'd like!
vegan parmesan cheese

What you do: 

Prepare canned soup with 1 1/2 cups of water. Mix in the risotto rice and bring to a boil.
Add in the basil, garlic powder, spinach and anything else you'd like. Let simmer for 15 minutes or so, being sure to stir it from time to time so it doesn't get stick on the bottom. It might appear soupy at first, but just be sure to stir it.
Cool a bit and serve topped with parmesan vegan cheese...mmmmm

This recipe was good and easy to make. I would add more seasoning to it (I added some cayenne pepper to it). Also I prepared it with chopped garlic and not the powder, so maybe add some powder to it as well as the fresh stuff. My first Risotto...yum.
