Ingredients - Trumpet Mushroom Risotto
- 1 lb Black Trumpet mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
- 2 cups Arborio rice
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 cups vegetable broth
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- Fresh parsley, for garnish
- Olive oil


Step 1 - Clean the Black Trumpet Mushrooms

Clean the trumpet mushrooms with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris. Slice them into manageable pieces, taking care to preserve their unique shape.

Step 2 - Heat Vegetable Broth

In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable broth over medium heat. Once hot, reduce the heat to low and keep it warm.

Step 3 - Sauté Onions

In a separate large pan, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent.

Step 4 - Cook Black Trumpet Mushrooms

Add the trumpet mushrooms to the pan and cook until they're tender and slightly browned. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Step 5 - Cook Rice

Add the Arborio rice to the pan with the mushrooms, stirring to ensure the grains are well coated in the oil and juices. Cook for about 2 minutes until the rice becomes slightly translucent around the edges. Pour in the white wine, stirring constantly until the wine is fully absorbed by the rice.

Step 6 - Add Broth to Rice

Begin adding the warm vegetable broth to the rice, one ladle at a time. Stir constantly, and only add the next ladle of broth once the previous one has been fully absorbed. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to al dente, this should take about 20-25 minutes.

Step 7 - Stir In Butter & Cheese

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter and Parmesan cheese until well combined. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Step 8 - Serve & Garnish

Serve the black trumpet risotto warm, garnished with fresh parsley.
