1 cup Arborio rice

4 cups chicken or vegetable broth

1 cup diced mushrooms

1/2 cup diced onion

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 cup white wine

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Prepare the broth: In a medium saucepan, heat the chicken or vegetable broth over low heat. Keep warm while you prepare the risotto.

Sauté the mushrooms: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced mushrooms and cook until they are golden brown and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the mushrooms from the skillet and set aside.

Sauté the onions and garlic: In the same skillet, add the diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the rice: Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for 1-2 minutes, until the rice is lightly toasted.

Deglaze with white wine: Pour in the white wine and stir continuously until the wine has been absorbed by the rice.

Add the broth: Begin adding the warm broth to the skillet, one ladle at a time, stirring continuously. Allow each ladle of broth to be absorbed before adding the next. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to al dente, about 18-20 minutes.

Finish the risotto: Once the rice is cooked, stir in the sautéed mushrooms, butter, and grated Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve and enjoy: Spoon the creamy mushroom risotto into bowls and garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
