  • 4 cups chopped white or brown mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 shallots diced
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 2 cups ARBORIO rice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • salt to season
  • dash of pepper


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and saute chopped mushrooms until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper. Put aside.
  • In the same skillet, over medium-high heat, melt 2 tbs of butter and sauté diced shallots. Add the ARBORIO rice and stir frequently. Toss the rice until it's coated.
  • Lower the heat on medium and add the wine and stir gently until wine reduces.(about 5 minutes).
  • Add chicken broth, 2 cups at a time, stirring constantly and waiting until the broth is reduced and absorbed by the rice. Continue adding the chicken broth.
  • Repeat the process, until all broth has been added and absorbed. At this point rice will become creamy.
  • Add the Parmesan cheese and saute mushrooms and season if needed.Serve immediately with shaved Parmesan cheese and freshly chopped parsley or cilantro. Enjoy!
