Mushroom Risotto is a lovely smooth recipe that has flavour, texture and alluring aroma. The subtle flavour of the garlic, mushrooms, onion and white wine blending with the Arborio Rice is a perfect formula. Served as a main dish, this is ready in 40 minutes for 4 people and your guests will be full of praise. I use chicken stock for a perfect balance but using vegetable stock turns this into an ideal vegetarian dish.

  • Place the mushrooms into a mug and add hot water. Add the porcini mushrooms and allow to soak for 10 minutes. Drain well.
  • Place a saucepan over a gentle heat and add the oil.
  • When hot, add the onion and garlic. Fry over a gentle heat until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the chestnut mushrooms and fry for a further 2-3 minutes, until browned.
  • Stir in the rice and coat in the oil.
  • Add the wine and adjust temperature until it starts to simmer. Stir constantly, until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Slowly add a ladle of stock at a time and simmer. Constantly stir, until the liquid has been absorbed again.
  • Continue to add the stock, a ladle at a time, until all the liquid has been absorbed. The rice should be plump and tender.
  • Chop the porcini mushrooms and stir into the risotto gently.
  • Add the butter to the risotto and allow to melt. Add the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Finally add the parsley and gently stir.
  • Roughly chop the soaked porcini mushrooms and stir into the risotto, along with the parsley, butter and salt and pepper. Serve immediately with freshly grated Parmesan.
