Ingredients

  • Good knob of butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g mixed chestnut and button mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 shallots, finely diced
  • 1 fat garlic clove, finely diced
  • 350g risotto rice
  • 200ml white wine
  • 800ml vegetable stock, hot
  • 150ml double cream
  • 80g vegetarian Gorgonzola or other vegetarian soft blue cheese, cubed
  • Small handful fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Heat the butter and 1 tbsp of the oil in a pan, add the mushrooms and pan-fry until golden, remove and set aside. Add the remaining oil to the pan and soften the shallots and garlic over a low heat for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and toast for a couple of minutes until opaque, then add the wine and sizzle until absorbed.
  2. Gradually add the hot stock to the pan, a ladleful at a time, waiting until each ladleful has been absorbed by the rice before adding another. After 20 minutes or so the rice should be cooked to al dente.
  3. Remove from the heat, stir through the cream and season well with salt and cracked black pepper. Fold through the mushrooms, blue cheese and parsley, then divide among plates and serve.

  1. I love this recipe because risotto is my all time favourite meal! I love how this recipe includes mushrooms and blue cheese because it’s a lovely combination flavour wise, I also think 40 minutes including the preparation time is amazing.
