Preparation:20min › Cook:30min › Extra time:50min › Ready in:1hour40min
- In a saucepan, warm the stock over low heat.
- Warm 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms and their liquid and set aside.
- Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to frypan and stir in the onions. Cook 1 minute. Add rice, stirring to coat with oil, about 2 minutes. When the rice has taken on a pale, golden colour, pour in wine stirring constantly until the wine is fully absorbed. Add 1/2 cup stock to the rice and stir until the stock is absorbed. Continue adding stock 1/2 cup (125ml) at a time, stirring continuously until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente, about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in mushrooms with their liquid, butter, chives and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Made this one a couple of times now. I use veggie stock and put the mushroom stalks in when simmering the stock. I usually just use one type of mushroom too - whatever is cheapest in the supermarket. Serve with parmesan cheese and lots of black pepper. Love it for lunch too. Thanks! - 30 Sep 2010
