  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 pound assorted mushrooms (such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster), sliced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, kept warm
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic and sauté until translucent.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and turn golden brown.
  3. Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice is well coated with the mushroom mixture.
  4. Pour in the white wine and cook until it is mostly absorbed by the rice.
  5. Begin adding the warm vegetable 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.
  6. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and butter until the risotto is rich and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve the Savory Mushroom Risotto hot, garnished with fresh parsley.
