Your nugget of nutritional info:

Grains---rice specifically. Time to right the wrong to carbohydrate by expounding on its benefits. Much like a car needs gas to run, your body needs carbs to convert to glucose, and risotto is a premium petrol. 1 cup of of risotto provides around 46 grams of carbohydrate, 16 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fat---the good kind.

Packing in as much as ½ the RDA for Vitamin D (2.4 mg per serving) it isn't stingy with vitamins: A, B6, and B12, either. A fiber-rich food, it fulfills about 1/3 of your daily need for riboflavin, and the same amount of folate.

The Results!

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 6 six ounce servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 4 cups NS chicken stock
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup shallots, diced fine
  • ½ cup dried mushrooms of choice, (I used portabellos)
  • ½ cup peas
  • ½ cup Parmesan, shredded
  • ¼ Italian parsley, diced fine
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, diced fine
  • 1-2 TBSP. olive oil
  • 1-2 TBSP. butter, or butter substitute

How to Do It:

  1. Using 1 cup of the stock, soak whole mushrooms for about 30 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid for later.
  2. Dice the mushrooms finely, and set aside for now.
  3. As good a time as any to prep your parsley. Dice that up, too, and set aside.
  4. Take the soaking liquid used for the mushrooms and add it to the remaining stock.
  5. Add both the stock and wine to a saucepan over med heat, and bring to a simmer...
  6. Maintain simmer. Meantime, in heavy bottomed pan, melt butter and oil until sizzling.
  7. Add shallots, and cook until translucent.
  8. Add rice. Stir well to ensure all grains become coated with oil.
  9. Add garlic. As soon as you hear that sizzle, add ½ of the simmering liquid to the rice mix. Stirring frequently, cook until all liquid is absorbed into the rice. This usually takes about 5 minutes, but use your best judgment.
  10. Once initial liquid addition is absorbed, continue to add the remaining, simmering liquid in ½ cup increments. Stir and wait until all liquid absorbs, before adding more.
  11. Once absorbed, add the peas and stir....
  12. Add mushrooms, and stir....
  13. Add parsley--
  14. And finish with the Parmesan cheese.
  15. This is a great side dish, but can also stand in for the main course!

Hearty enough to be a main course!

      This looks filling and complete meal! The combination of ingredients looks interesting.

      I also cook something like this with slight variation in ingredients. Now I am going to try your version, that is with mushroom.

      Thanks for sharing the step by step illustrations and pictures. Voted up!
