  • 2 x 250 g punnets mixed exotic mushrooms
  • 1 T butter
  • thyme a few sprigs
  • 1 litre porcini stock
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 200 g arborio rice
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 40-60 g Parmesan, plus extra for serving
  • freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions

In a pan over a medium heat, sauté the mushrooms with the butter and thyme until golden, then set aside.

Bring the stock to the boil in a saucepan. In a heavy-based pot, sauté the onion and garlic in a little olive oil over a low heat – do not allow to colour.

Add the rice and cook until all the grains are coated in the oil.

Add the wine and turn up the heat so that it cooks away quickly.

Add a ladleful of boiling stock and stir gently until it is completely absorbed.

Repeat until all the stock has been absorbed, about 20 mnutes. When rice is al dente, add the mushrooms (keeping a few aside to garnish) and Parmesan and stir through.

Serve with Parmesan shavings and a crack of black pepper, to taste.
