Mushroom Risotto

It’s a good thing to make if you’ve only got some mushrooms in your fridge. No mucking about, just good simple food.

  1. Toss into a hot pot a small knob of butter.
  2. Add in minced shallots once the foaming of the butter has subsided. Fry till fragrant.
  3. Next, sliced or chunky bits of mushroom. Saute them gently.
  4. Before the mushrooms are done, add in the rice and toss about well.
  5. Splash in a good lug of dry white wine and reduce it as much as possible.
  6. Cook the rice slowly by adding chicken or vegetable stock in small quantities, stirring all the way through, until the rice is cooked to creamy yet still al dente.
  7. Season accordingly with a crack of black pepper and sea salt.
  8. Serve with a shaving of fresh Parmesan and/or chopped arugula.
