  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 8 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the chicken or vegetable broth in a saucepan and keep it warm over low heat.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until they become translucent.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and turn golden brown.
  4. Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for a couple of minutes until it becomes translucent around the edges.
  5. If using, pour in the white wine and stir until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
  6. Begin adding the warm broth, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to your desired level of doneness (about 18-20 minutes).
  7. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Remove from heat, cover, and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
