Yummiest Mushroom Risotto

    1 hour

    A great vegetarian dish that is reeaalllly filling...! It can take some time to cook as the liquid needs to absorb bit by bit, whilst stirring, to get the creamiest result without burning the bottom of the pan. I buy pre-sliced mushrooms to save on prep time.

    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
