Recipe | Creamy Mushroom Risotto

Serves: 2 people
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 30 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot (or ½ white onion) – diced
  • 3 garlic cloves – minced
  • 100g / 1 cup button mushrooms – thinly sliced
  • 100g / ½ cup risotto rice
  • Approx 500ml / 2 cups vegetable stock
  • (Optional) ½ tbsp white wine vinegar*
  • (Optional) 4 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes**
  • Fresh parsley, to serve
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add the shallot and garlic and cook on a medium-low heat until softened.
  2. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further minute.
  3. Stir in the risotto rice and immediately pour in the stock and vinegar (if using). Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for approximately 30 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked. Add more hot water, if necessary.
  4. Once cooked, stir in the nutritional yeast (if using), stir in a handful of chopped fresh parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
*White wine vinegar adds extra flavour but it still works well without it.
**Nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavour but again, still works well when left out.
