  • 250 grams Arborio rice
  • 250 grams mushrooms chopped (I use Shitake and Shimeji)
  • Half a big onion chopped
  • garlic chopped (I use 3 teaspoons of crushed…looove garlic)
  • 1,5 litres stock
  • 45 grams butter
  • splash of olive oil
  • Lemon zest
  • fresh thyme
  • 125 mls of grated parmesan

Fry onions, mushrooms and garlic in half the butter and olive oil.   Add  dry rice.   Cook for a few minutes, ladle stock little by little.   Let the rice absorb the stock between ladling.   Takes half an hour to 40 mins.   Finally add lemon zest, parmesan and thyme.
Stir in rest of butter.
I use beef stock. It adds to the meatiness of the mushrooms (The powder one. You can use the sachets). But you can use any stock.
