Yummiest Mushroom Risotto

A great vegetarian dish that is reeaalllly filling...! Can take some time as the liquid needs to absorb bit by bit to get the creamiest result without burning the bottom of the pot. So make this when you have a bit of time. I also buy pre-sliced mushrooms to save on prep time.

PetiteMiam New South Wales, Australia

Serves: 4 

  • 7 cups (1.75 litres) of vegetable stock (can use chicken / beef if you prefer)
  • 1 cup (250ml) of white wine
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 60 grams butter
  • 1 leek thinly sliced
  • 400 grams sliced mushrooms
  • 500 grams arborio rice
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese + a little extra for serving
  • 3 tbs parsley + a little extra for serving
  • pepper to taste

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Prepare stock & wine in a large saucepan and bring to the boil for 5 mins then keep at a low simmer.
  2. In a large pot (this is the pot your risotto will cook in so needs to be large) heat oil and butter. Add sliced leek and cook at medium heat for 5 mins or until soft. Add in the mushrooms and cook a further 5 mins
  3. Stir in the aborio rice and cook until translucent. Add 1/2 cup simmering stock, stirring until almost completely absorbed. Continue adding 1/2 cup stock until absorbed until all stock is added.
  4. Cook for a further 20 mins OR until the stock is absorbed - stirring continually
  5. Once stock is absorbed mix in Parmesan cheese and parsley. Stir until melted and mixed all the way through.
  6. Serve with garnish of parsley & parmesan, cracked pepper to taste

Altered ingredient amounts. Used chopped basil instead of parsley; lemon juice instead of wine...only because didn't have either ingredient in the fridge! - 06 Apr 2009


Used different ingredients. Used a Sauv Blanc, a mix of Swiss Brown, shiitake, button and field mushrooms, added a dash of lemon juice at the end, and used continental parsley. So tasty! - 07 Jan 2010


But that's the whole point of risotto! Stirring to maximise the full potential of the rice! - 13 Aug 2013
