Yummy mushroom risotto

People often confuse risotto as a pasta dish, but it is actually a rice-based dish. Risotto is a North Italian dish that is made with Arborio rice. You will fall in love with this dish. It takes only 30 minutes to prepare this delight.

To make Gordon Ramsay’s mushroom risotto, take a large skillet, add olive oil, stir in the mushrooms. In another skillet, add some olive oil, shallots, and rice. When the rice is golden in color, pour in the wine, and stir till the wine is fully absorbed. Add about half the broth, and stir until it is absorbed. Finally add mushrooms, butter, chives, and parmesan, salt, and pepper.

Steps To Make Gordon Ramsay’s Mushroom Risotto

1. Room For Mushroom?

Take a saucepan and put the chicken broth in it. Place the saucepan over low heat to keep the broth warm. You can’t put the cold broth into your risotto. That’ll ruin it.

Then, take a large skillet and heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in it over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms to it and cook until soft. Remove the mushrooms and their liquid from the skillet and keep them aside. Now that your mushrooms are ready, let’s prepare your risotto.

2. Preparing The Risotto

It is time to prepare the risotto. Take a large skillet and add a tablespoon of olive oil to it. Let it heat a bit and add the shallots. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Then, add rice and stir. When the rice is pale in color, pour in the wine. Stir until the wine is fully evaporated.

Continue adding broth 1 cup at a time, until the liquid is absorbed, for about 20-25 minutes. Remove the skillet from heat, and add mushrooms along with their liquid, butter, chives, and parmesan to it. Season with salt and pepper to taste and your smooth mushroom risotto is ready.
