Although risotto can be a little time consuming, it’s so worth it! It’s not complicated, it just requires attention as you need to slowly stir in the stock, let it absorb, stir in some more and repeat until it’s tender. I used Baby Bella (crimini) mushrooms, but you can use portobella, porcini, shiitake, white button or a combination of all four. If you’re not a fan of mushrooms, try this Asparagus Risotto, Butternut Squash Risotto, Creamy or these Seared Scallops over wilted Spinach and Parmesan Risotto.

If you need a dish to keep you mindful, risotto is it because it’s not the kind of dish you turn on and walk away from. Instead it’s slowly cooked with ladle-fuls of broth, adding more each time it’s absorbed. Mushrooms simmered in broth are mixed in at the end topped with lots of Parmesan Cheese. You can serve this as a main dish or side.

How To Know When Risotto is Done:

The best way to know is to taste it. You will know the risotto is done when the center of the rice is no longer white. Cooked risotto should be al dente or fully cooked, yet still firm to the bite.

Mushrooms Nutrition

A nutrient powerhouse, mushrooms are the only source of vitamin D in the produce aisle. Mushrooms are a rich, low calorie source of fiber, protein, and antioxidants. Interesting fact, since mushrooms don’t require daylight and are grown indoors, they are in season year round.

What To Serve with Mushroom Risotto

Risotto is a gluten-free dish. You can have this as a main dish or serve it as a side dish with pork, chicken or turkey.
