Ingredients

  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 cup assorted mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, kept warm
  • 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. Heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large pan over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until translucent.

  3. Pour in the white wine and cook until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
