Creamy Mushroom Risotto: Elegant Dish

There’s a certain elegance in simplicity, and this Creamy Mushroom Risotto embodies that perfectly. It’s a dish that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, taking humble ingredients and turning them into a symphony of flavors that dance on your palate.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 cup assorted mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by heating the chicken or vegetable broth in a saucepan and keeping it warm over low heat.
  2. In a separate large pan, heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent.
  3. Add the Arborio rice to the pan and toast it for a couple of minutes until it’s lightly golden.
  4. Pour in the dry white wine and cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Begin adding the warm broth, one ladleful at a time, allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. Stir frequently to develop that creamy texture.
  6. When the rice is almost cooked, stir in the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic.
  7. Once the rice and mushrooms are tender, remove the pan from heat. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of butter, grated Parmesan, and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve the risotto in elegant bowls, garnished with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
