Gourmet Mushroom Risotto


Gourmet Mushroom Risotto


6 cups chicken broth, or as needed
3 Tbs olive oil, divided
1 lb portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 lb white mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 med shallots, diced
1 ½ cups Arborio rice
½ cup dry white wine
4 Tbs butter
3 Tbs finely chopped chives
⅓ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Step 1

Warm broth in a saucepan over low heat.

Step 2

Meanwhile, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add portobello and white mushrooms; cook and stir until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms and their liquid to a bowl; set aside.

Step 3

Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the saucepan. Stir in shallots and cook for 1 minute. Add rice; cook and stir until rice is coated with oil and pale, golden in color, about 2 minutes.

Step 4

Pour in wine, stirring constantly until wine is fully absorbed. Add 1/2 cup warm broth to the rice; stir until the broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, yet firm to the bite, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 5

Remove from heat. Stir in reserved mushrooms and their liquid, butter, chives, and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
