Creamy Mushroom Risotto

(1 Votes)
40 Min

This is no ordinary rice dish! Our Creamy Mushroom Risotto is just that -- creamy with just a little bit of crunch.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 Portobello mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinaigrette
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon prepared minced garlic
  • 1 cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Spray cold grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350 degrees to 400 degrees).

  2. Place mushrooms on grill rack; brush half of vinaigrette over mushrooms. Grill mushrooms, covered, 5 minutes on each side or until tender, brushing mushrooms with remaining vinaigrette when turned. Remove mushrooms from grill and coarsely dice; set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, bring chicken broth to a simmer  (do not boil). Keep warm over low heat.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and rice; cook, stirring constantly, 4 minutes, or until onion is tender. Add 1/2 cup hot broth, stirring constantly, until liquid is nearly absorbed. Repeat procedure, adding remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until each portion of broth is absorbed before adding next portion (about 22 minutes total).
  5. Remove from heat; stir in mushrooms and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.

In order to have this come out just right, don't be tempted to speed up the cooking process.

Triangle Hat Cookies

We know a very sweet Jewish grandma who loved to serve up Hamantashen to her grandchildren for Purim, except, here's the thing...the kids liked to call 'em "Triangle Hat Cookies," 'cause that's what they look like! Whatever you call 'em, make sure you bake up a batch of these filled cookie treats!
