  1. Rinse the Risotto under cold water until there’s no starch running out of it. Put it into a bowl, cover with cold water and soak for 30 to 60 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onions, celery and green pepper and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
  3. Drain the rice and add it along with the tomato paste.
  4. Add the kidney beans, diced tomatoes, stock, chilli powder, cumin, oregano, ground coriander, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, partially cover and cook for 1 hour.
  5. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve.
