- 2 cups Arborio rice
- 1 pound assorted mushrooms (such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster), sliced
- 4 cups vegetable broth, kept warm
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh parsley, for garnish
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic and sauté until translucent.
- Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and turn golden brown.
- Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice is well coated with the mushroom mixture.
- Pour in the white wine and cook until it is mostly absorbed by the rice.
- Begin adding the warm vegetable broth, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to your desired level of doneness, about 18-20 minutes.
- Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and butter until the risotto is rich and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the Savory Mushroom Risotto hot, garnished with fresh parsley.
