Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Sauté the onions until translucent.
  2. Add the garlic and mushrooms, and cook until the mushrooms are golden and tender. Remove from the pot and set aside.
  3. In the same pot, add the Arborio rice and cook for a couple of minutes until lightly toasted.
  4. Pour in the white wine and let it simmer until mostly absorbed.
  5. Gradually add the chicken or vegetable broth, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before each addition. Continue this until the rice is creamy and cooked to perfection.
  6. Stir in the cooked mushrooms, remaining butter, Parmesan cheese, and heavy cream. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  8. Serve the risotto hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley.
