• 8 cups canned low salt Chicken Broth

  • 0.5 oz dried porcini mushroom

  • 0.25 cup unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 2 cups finely chopped Onions

  • 10 oz white Mushrooms finely chopped

  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced

  • 1.5 cups Arborio rice or short-grain white rice

  • 0.66 cup Dry White Wine

  • 0.75 cup frozen pea thawed

  • 0.66 cup grated Parmesan

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper optional


  • 1.

    Bring the broth to a simmer in a heavy medium saucepan. Add the porcini mushrooms. Set aside until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes. Keep the broth warm over very low heat.

  • 2.

    Melt the butter in a heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add olive oil. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the white mushrooms and garlic. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the porcini mushrooms to a cutting board. Finely chop the mushrooms and add to the saucepan. Saute until the mushrooms are tender and the juices evaporate, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and let it toast for a few minutes. Add the wine; cook until the liquid is absorbed, stirring often, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of hot broth; simmer over medium-low heat until the liquid is absorbed, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Continue to cook until the rice is just tender and the mixture is creamy, adding more broth by cupfuls and stirring often, about 28 minutes (the rice will absorb 6 to 8 cups of broth). Stir in the peas. Mix in the Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Dried porcini mushrooms are wonderful. They do have a very strong flavour so use it sparingly. If you have not eaten it before, use a small amount and then add more when you make the recipe again. Bellisimo!
