Mushroom Risotto

Mushroom risotto is that kind of dish that is perfect for those days when you need something quick, flavorful, and easy to prepare that can be served immediately as it’s done.

The most important thing when making risotto is to have every ingredient prepared before starting to cook as the risotto involves constantly stirring.

The risotto requires adding ladlefuls of stock to the uncooked rice, gradually,  until all stock is well absorbed. This way the starch is released and results in a creamy comforting dish. For a more intense flavor, you can include the water in which you soaked the porcini mushrooms.

This Mushroom Risotto is worth all the effort so I hope you will give it a try.

    Hi! I am just wondering if adding the white wine is absolutely necessary as I don’t have any white wine at home currently and a liquor store is quite far.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      well.. it is not really necessary.. you can do it without and still be delicious.. but you know wine does bring a special flavor to it..
