Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms
  • Splash olive oil
  • Knob of butter
  • Bunch fresh thyme sprigs
  • 250g risotto rice
  • 750ml vegetable stock (hot)
  • 100g taleggio cheese or vegetarian alternative

Method

  1. Roughly chop the onion and slice the chestnut mushrooms. Heat the oil and the butter in a non-stick medium-size saucepan over a medium heat, then fry the onion and mushrooms for 4-5 minutes until the onion has softened.
  2. Remove the leaves from the thyme sprigs and add most of them to the pan. Continue cooking for a further 1 minute. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  3. Begin adding the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring until each ladleful has been absorbed before adding the next. Continue in this way for around 15-18 minutes until all the stock has been added and the rice is cooked and creamy, with a slight bite.
  4. Cut the taleggio into small cubes. Stir into the risotto, then serve scattered with extra thyme leaves (optional).
