Risotto is one of my very favorite things to make.
It is actually very simple and very delicious. Plus it makes you look like a great cook!
In the first picture I have a large frying skillet with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, one large onion, one challot, one package of portobella mushrooms and one clove of garlic, salt and pepper. I cooked these on medium until golden brown. Then I remove them from the pan. At the same time I have a box of chicken stock coming to a boil in a pot.
After I removed the onion mixture I add 1/2 cup of Risotto rice to a tablespoon of olive oil and cook for a minute. Then add 1/4 cup of white wine and let cook out. As seen in the second picture. Then a cup at a time of the chicken stock. Adding more as each cup gets absorbed. After 4-5 cups are added ( rice should be cooked and the Risotto not dry) add the mushroom mixture back in as well as 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. As seen in picture 3.
Finally once everything is equally mixed in you can serve. As seen in picture 4.
