    1. In a large pan bring chicken stock to the boil. Pour in white wine and continue to boil for 3 minutes, then lower the heat to to the lowest setting.
    2. Cook mushrooms in a frying pan with butter until soft. Once soft, remove from heat and set aside.
    3. Heat olive oil in a pan over low heat and cook onion for 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft. Add rice and stir, then add a ladleful of hot chicken and wine stock. Mix well and continue gradually adding stock, taking care to mix well so that the rice does not stick to the pan.
    4. Continue until all of the stock has been added and the rice is firm but tender.
    5. Drain any excess juices from the mushrooms, then add the mushrooms to the risotto along with the Parmesan. Stir to combine, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve straightaway with extra grated Parmesan, if desired.


    This mushroom risotto can be made with any type of mushroom with great success. Also try adding some fresh herbs, such as thyme or parsley.
