Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. In a large, deep skillet or a Dutch oven, heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped onion and garlic and sauté until they become translucent, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for an additional 2 minutes, ensuring the rice is well coated with the oil and butter.
  4. Pour in the white wine and cook until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
  5. Start adding the chicken or vegetable broth, one ladle at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding more.
  6. When the rice is almost tender (about 18-20 minutes), stir in the sliced mushrooms and continue cooking until they are soft and the rice is creamy.
  7. Remove the risotto from heat and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, remaining butter, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
