Mushroom Risotto

I often hear people say that risotto is too difficult to make.  If stirring rice is hard then you won’t like making this dish.  This meal takes around 30 minutes to make and has a short list of ingredients.  When you serve it everyone will oooh and ahhh and because they think it’s so hard to make, they’ll be very impressed.

Ingredients:

2 cups Arborio rice
2-4 shallots diced
1 cup white wine
6-7 cups of mushroom stock
1 package shitake mushrooms sliced
2-3 Portobello mushrooms chopped
1-2 cups of grated parmesan
1 tsp Virgin organic coconut oil
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

First, heat up the mushroom stock and keep on low.  In a pan with sides, sauté the shallots in the two oils.  When they are tender, add the rice and sauté for a few minutes.  Now you want to begin the process of adding the stock one ladle at a time.  You add in the stock, stir, and when it is absorbed repeat the process.  When you have around 3 or 4 ladles of stock left, add in the mushrooms, salt and pepper.    Once all of the stock has been absorbed, which should take around 20 minutes, it’s time to turn off the heat and add in the cheese.  If you want your risotto to be dairy free you don’t need to add in the cheese, it’s already creamy without it.

    Oh yum! It is always such a bummer that risotto relies so much on Parmesan!

    Alisa- Many folks eat it without the Parmesan. I've not tried it because I can't have rice either. This is a dish I make for my family. Let me know if you try it without the cheese.
