2 cups chopped oyster mushrooms​

4 cups mushroom, vegetable or chicken stock

1 1/2 cups Arborio rice or short grain rice

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons butter or olive oil, divided

3/4 cup finely chopped onion or shallot

white truffle oil and miso paste


In a large saucepan, melt 2 tbsps butter and sauté the onion over medium heat.

Once the onion becomes translucent, add the rice and mushrooms, coating them with butter.

Add the white wine and simmer until it has nearly evaporated. Then add 1 cup of broth and simmer until absorbed.

Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time until it absorbs and rice is tender, about 20 minutes in total.

Stir in salt, pepper, other herbs or seasonings and remove from heat.

Stir in Parmesan cheese and the remaining butter. Serve immediately. Serves 2-3 as a main or 4 as a side.

I have heard about the therapeutic properties of mushrooms. But honestly, I do not like the way they taste. These recipes helped me learn ways to eat mushrooms that taste great and I have been so grateful!
