Risotto is a delicious dish, but it’s not at all complicated to make. It’s actually pretty easy. And perfect for a cozy dinner for two. 🙂
Start by preparing all your ingredients. Slice the mushrooms and chop the onion.
Into a medium pot, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and saute the onion for 7 minutes. Add the sliced mushroom and saute for 5 more minutes, until all the water is evaporated. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the rice and fry it for a few seconds. This will give a nutty flavor to the actual dish.
Add 150 ml of stock and stir to release any goodness from the bottom of the pot. At this step, you have 2 options:
- you can add 100 ml of white wine
- you can add vegetable or chicken stock instead
Let the risotto cook, and stir every other minute, to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pot. Add stock when needed, until the risotto is cooked through.
At the end, add freshly grated parmesan and stir to combine. Serve warm with grilled mushrooms and asparagus.
