- 2 cups Arborio rice
- 8 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large saucepan, heat the chicken or vegetable broth over low heat. Keep it warm but not boiling.
- In a separate large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until translucent.
- Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and become tender.
- Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the rice becomes translucent at the edges.
- Pour in the white wine and cook until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
- Begin adding the warm 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 season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
