Mushroom risotto Ⓥ

Leave a comment


I love risotto, but only the ones I make myself (or those made by my Italian friend, chef & fellow yogini Lucia). Tonight I was inspired by this recipe, which I tweaked a bit.

I added some cherry tomatoes & 2 garlic cloves (with their skin), pepper & salt in the oven, as well as 2 of the big mushrooms, sliced, tossed with pepper, salt & olive oil. I put the vegetables in 2 different oven dishes for about 20-25 minutes at 190 degrees.


  • 1,5 cups of arborio rice, rinsed
  • 5 cups of vegan stock
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 5 to 6 big mushrooms (about 500g)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Unsweetened soy cream
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 2 tbsp vegan margarine (optional)


  1. Prepare the 5 cups vegetable stock/ broth and set aside.
  2. Rinse the rice and set aside.
  3. Add the olive oil to a pot, add the onion and sauté on medium high for a couple of minutes.
  4. Then add in the sliced mushrooms, stir fry for a couple of minutes until the mushrooms are golden.
  5. Add the garlic and stir fry for a few minutes.
  6. Add the rice and sauté for a minute or so.
  7. Add the white wine and allow to be absorbed.
  8. Add 3 cups of vegetable stock/broth, stir well and simmer until the broth is mostly absorbed.
  9. Then add 1 cup vegetable stock/broth, stir well again and cover and simmer until the broth is mostly absorbed.
  10. Then add the last 1 cup of vegetable stock/broth, stir well again and simmer for a final few minutes.
  11. Once all the stock/broth has been mostly absorbed by the rice, add a few tablespoons of soy cream and mix well.
  12. Turn off the heat and stir in the 2 Tbsp of vegan butter.
  13. Add sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  14. Serve with some nutritional yeast.
  15. Serve with the roasted cherry tomatoes and mushrooms.
  16. Enjoy.
