  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Heat the chicken or vegetable broth in a saucepan and keep it warm over low heat.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, sauté until translucent.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and become golden brown.
  4. Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for 2-3 minutes until lightly toasted.
  5. Pour in the dry white wine and stir until it is absorbed by the rice.
  6. Begin adding the warm broth, one ladle at a time, stirring constantly. Allow each addition of broth to be absorbed before adding the next, and continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked al dente, about 18-20 minutes.
  7. Remove the risotto from heat and stir in the remaining butter and grated Parmesan cheese until creamy and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve the creamy mushroom risotto hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley.
