Recipe Ingredients for Mushroom Risotto with Peas

6 1/2 cups fat-free chicken broth
16 ounces white mushrooms, finely chopped

2 cups onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Recipe Directions for Mushroom Risotto with Peas

  1. Bring the broth to a simmer in a heavy,medium-size saucepan. Cover the broth and keep warm over very low heat.

  2. Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the white mushrooms and garlic; saute until the mushrooms are tender and the juices evaporate, about 10 minutes. Stir in the rice. Add 1 cup of the hot broth; cook, stirring often, until the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Add another cup of hot broth; simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Continue to cook until the rice is just tender and the mixture is creamy, adding more broth by cupfuls and stirring often, about 28 minutes. Stir in the peas. Mix in the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
