Mushroom Risotto

Mushroom Risotto

Originating in northern Italy, risotto has been satisfying discerning palates for centuries. Creamy and versatile, it can be enjoyed as a main course or as a flavorful side dish. Our authentic Mushroom Risotto Mix is made with arborio rice, savory mushrooms and herbs to give you a restaurant quality dish that’s easy to prepare at home.

In Italy, risotto is normally a primo or first course served on its own before the main course but you can feel confident about serving our delicious Mushroom Risotto with grilled meats or chicken. The simple key to making our risotto “just right”, is starting with the best Arborio rice. Ours is long and plump and ready to slowly absorb all the flavor of the stock, herbs and mushrooms yet still remain al dente, the way it should be.

  • Authentic and full flavored
  • Great as a main dish or served as a side
  • Easy to make with just a few items from your pantry

Preparation & Instructions

Mushroom Risotto

  • 3-3 ½ cups chicken stock (more if needed), preferably low sodium
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter or olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup white wine, optional
  • Grated Parmesan for garnish, optional

In a sauce pan heat chicken stock, keep on very low simmer. In a separate medium-sized, heavy saucepan, heat the butter (or olive oil) over medium heat until melted. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add the risotto mix and stir to coat all grains for 2-3 minutes (do not allow the rice to brown). Optional: add white wine, stir and cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice has absorbed all the wine. Add 2 cups of the warmed chicken stock; stir occasionally until most of the liquid is absorbed, approximately 10 minutes. Continue to add chicken stock ½ cup at a time, stirring occasionally until most liquid is absorbed. Repeat until all chicken stock is added and absorbed, approximately 20-25 minutes. Rice should be tender and creamy. Garnish with a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
