How to make mushroom risotto:
Risottos need to be creamy in texture, slightly al dente and full of flavor. These requirements make risottos fairly tricky to make but when done properly provide a fantastic dish. Of course it is an excellent vegetarian dish and the addition of cheese can make it truly sumptuous. A good tip is to vary the mushrooms you use to provide different flavors in the dish.





Ingredients

6 heaped tablespoons organic risotto rice
at least 2 pints hot vegetable stock
2 large organic onions
garlic to taste
assorted organic mushrooms (Oyster and Brown mushrooms are especially good)
organic olive oil
soy sauce
salt
black pepper
(see measure conversions for more information)

Method

- Fry onions and garlic in some olive oil in a large heavy pan until onions are transparent.
- Add sliced mushrooms.
- Add rice and cook for approx. 2 minutes, stirring all the time.
- Add some of the hot vegetable stock.
- The rice will begin to cook and soften and absorb the stock.
- Add more stock gradually until rice is cooked and creamy.
- Season with soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste and serve hot with organic bread and salad.
