Risotto ai Funghi Recipe: A Delicious Mushroom Risotto

When you think of risotto, what comes to mind? Maybe you’re thinking about a creamy rice dish that is made with the addition of white wine and cheese. If so, then this recipe is for you! It’s both delicious and nutritious – plus it only takes 20 minutes to prepare.

Cooking time: 15 – 20 minutes
Servers: 4 people


  • 400g of arborio rice
  • 300g of dried porcini mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes
  • 150ml white wine
  • One tablespoon of olive oil
  • Half an onion, chopped
  • Two cloves of garlic, minced
  • Three cups of vegetable broth
  • 150g of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to tast


Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic to the pan, cooking for about five minutes or until translucent and fragrant.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in arborio rice, stirring continuously so that each grain is coated with oil before adding more of it into your pot, continuing this process until you’ve added all of your rice (about three minutes). Make sure not to allow any clumps to form during this step – if necessary add another tablespoon or two of oil at this point. Pour wine into the risotto mixture while stirring constantly; once it has been mostly absorbed by the rice begin pouring small amounts of vegetable broth into your pot as you continue stirring. Allow the rice to absorb each addition of broth before adding more. This process should take about fifteen minutes; once you’ve added all of your vegetable broth, allow it to cook for another five minutes over low heat. Stir in grated Parmesan and soaked porcini mushrooms at this point. The risotto will be creamy and ready to serve after a few final stirs!
