Best Ever Wild Mushroom Risotto

Best Ever Wild Mushroom Risotto


  • 3 Tbsp J. Olive Co. Wild Mushroom and Sage Olive Oil, divided

  • 1 cup Arborio rice

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 2 cups mushrooms, such as portobello, sliced

  • 3 cups hot chicken broth

  • ¾ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. In a heavy saucepan, saute rice in 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add onion and garlic; saute until onion is fairly tender.

  2. Add the wine and saute until the liquid is absorbed. Slowly add 1 cup hot broth, stirring. As the liquid is absorbed, add most of the broth ½ cup at a time, stirring frequently. Before adding the last ½ cup, add the mushrooms and let simmer briefly.  Then add the remaining broth and cook until the rice is very creamy. Gently stir in the Parmesan cheese, pepper, and remaining olive oil. Serve immediately. Makes 4 generous servings.
