Oyster Mushroom Risotto

Updated: Oct 29, 2018



  • 4-5 cups vegetable/ chicken stock

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  • 115g FreshlyGrounds Oyster mushrooms, sliced if large

  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 cups Arborio or Carnaroli rice

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Garnish: shaved Parmesan cheese


  • 1. Heat stock in pot; cover to keep warm.

  • 2.  Melt 1 & 1/2 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook oyster mushrooms until tender and slightly browned all over, about 3 minutes; transfer to a plate.

  • 3.  Melt 1 & 1/2 tablespoons butter in saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Stir in rice, and cook until coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Add wine, and cook until almost completely absorbed, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • 4.  Ladle 1 cup reserved stock over rice, and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until almost completely absorbed. Continue adding stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring constantly and waiting for each addition to be almost completely absorbed before adding the next, until grains are al dente but not crunchy, about 30 minutes. (Add remaining stock to loosen the risotto, if desired.)

  • 5.  Remove from heat, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the grated Parmesan. Top risotto with sauteed mushrooms (reheat if necessary), and garnish with shaved Parmesan.
