Bring Vaxtkraft and water to boil in a saucepan then reduce to a low simmer.
In a pan, saute the spring onion in olive oil until transparent. Add the rice and cook for a minute or until rice is translucent at edges. Stir in the fresh tomatoes, tomato puree, sugar and wine and cook for a couple of mins or until the wine has evaporated. Add the Vaxtkraft stock, one ladle at a time stirring constantly until the liquid is absorbed, repeat until all the stock has been added and the rice is al dente.
Add the butter and parmesan cheese and stir until combined.
