About this recipe: This mushroom risotto is one of my all time favourite meals, simple to make, and adaptable for different tastes (for example adding chicken for those who don't like meals without meat).

Serves: 4 

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 150g arborio rice
  • 250g mushrooms, chopped
  • 50ml white wine (optional)
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 50g Parmesan cheese shavings
  • 1 handful chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. In a large pan (I use my wok!) gently fry onions in olive oil over a medium heat till soft, adding the garlic after 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and stir for 1 minute before adding the mushrooms. Add the wine, if using, and once it mostly evaporates, add a third of the stock. Gently simmer for 30 minutes (or until the rice is soft), gradually adding more stock as required (as the pan starts to run out of stock) until it is all used.
  3. Once all stock is reduced and rice softens, stir in Parmesan, parsley and salt and pepper to taste (I personally like a lot of pepper in mine).
  4. Finally stir in butter before serving.


Try serving with garlic bread and asparagus or topped with fresh rocket for a bit of colour and variety on the plate

Having never made a risotto before I found this recipe easy to follow and the outcome was AMAZING! I didn't change a thing, and chose to serve with some rocket on the top for decoration like the restaurants do. I will definitely be making this again and again! - 16 Jun 2014


As a first time risotto maker i found this recipe very easy to follow with great results! If I had known it was this simple I would have made it long ago. Thanks for sharing x - 21 Dec 2015
