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


  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until they become translucent.
  3. Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for a couple of minutes until the rice turns slightly translucent.
  4. Pour in the white wine and stir until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
  5. Begin adding the chicken or vegetable broth, one ladle at a time, stirring constantly and allowing each ladle to be absorbed before adding the next.
  6. After about 15 minutes, when the rice is creamy and cooked but still has a slight bite, stir in the sliced mushrooms.
  7. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, allowing the mushrooms to soften and release their flavor into the risotto.
  8. Remove from heat, stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.
