Golden Chanterelle Risotto Recipe
- 1 cup Arborio Rice
- 3 cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock
- 1/2 pound Fresh Golden Chanterelle Mushrooms
- 1 small Onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves Garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup Dry White Wine
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Olive Oil
- Grated Parmesan Cheese for garnish


Step 1 - Prepare the mushrooms

Begin by cleaning your golden chanterelles with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris.

Chop the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces.

Step 2 - Prepare the onion and garlic

Finely chop your onion and mince the garlic.

Step 3 - Saute the onion and garlic

In a large pan over medium heat, add olive oil then sauté onions until they become translucent.

Add in the garlic and continue sautéing until fragrant.

Step 4 - Add the golden chanterelles

Stir in your prepared golden chanterelles and cook until they are tender.

Step 5 - Add the rice

Add Arborio rice into the pan stirring continuously so that each grain gets coated with oil.

Step 6 - Add the white wine

Pour in white wine while continuing to stir until it's fully absorbed by the rice.

Step 7 - Add the stock

Gradually add stock one ladle at a time ensuring each addition is absorbed before adding more. Continue this process till all stock has been used up and risotto becomes creamy but still al dente (firm when bitten).

Step 8 - Garnish and serve

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot, garnished with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
