Ingredients

  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 cup assorted mushrooms, sliced (cremini, shiitake, oyster)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups vegetable or mushroom broth
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by heating the vegetable broth in a pot and keeping it warm over low heat.
  2. In a separate large skillet, heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
  3. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, then add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  4. Add the Arborio rice to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, until the rice is lightly toasted.
  5. Pour in the dry white wine and cook until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.

  7. Stir in the assorted mushrooms and continue to cook until they are tender.
