"This authentic Italian-style risotto is cooked the slow, painful way, but it's oh so worth it. It's the perfect complement for grilled meats and chicken dishes."

Recipe Ingredients for Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

6 cups chicken broth, divided
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 pound portobella mushrooms
2 cups shallots
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

  1. In a saucepan, warm the broth over low heat.

  2. Warm 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms and their liquid, and set aside.

  3. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet, and stir in the shallots. Cook 1 minute. Add rice, stirring to coat with oil, about 2 minutes. When the rice has taken on a pale, golden color, pour in wine, stirring constantly until the wine is fully absorbed. Add 1/2 cup broth to the rice, and stir until the broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring continuously, until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente, about 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat, and stir in mushrooms with their liquid, butter, chives, and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
