Ready In: 50 Minutes
6 cups chicken broth, divided
1/2 cup Dry Gourmet White Wine Bouillon (combine with 1 cup warm water)
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
sea salt to taste
1 pound portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 pound white mushrooms, thinly sliced 4 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, diced
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
- In a saucepan, warm the broth over low heat.
- 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.
- 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 bouillon, 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.
- Remove from heat, and stir in mushrooms with their liquid, butter, chives, and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
