Ingredients list


Cooking pot


  • Clean the mushrooms thoroughly. Cut off the stems from about half of the mushrooms.
  • Put the vegetable broth in a pot and bring to a boil. Add the mushroom stems and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Then cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Peel the onion and chop finely.
  • Heat some olive oil with half of the butter in a large pot and sauté the onion briefly. Add the mushrooms and brown over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the rice and sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Deglaze with the white wine and reduce until the alcohol has completely evaporated.
  • Now pour a ladle of the mushroom vegetable broth through a strainer into the pot and simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
  • Then keep adding a little broth and stir constantly. Once the broth is almost completely absorbed, repeat the process. This should take about 30 minutes in total. The rice should end up tender but still somewhat firm to the bite.
  • Remove the pot from the heat. Stir in the grated Parmigiano, the remaining butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the risotto in bowls or deep plates, sprinkle with chopped parsley if desired and serve hot.
    Buon appetito!

Product recommendation for this recipe

Principato – Arborio rice

An icon of Italian quality rice, with a larger grain than other varieties and a high starch content. The tasty flavor is due to its easily absorbed carbohydrates and noble proteins.
