To cook Mushroom risotto recipes is very easy as long as you have the required ingredients ready and handy.
To start, first, chop the onions, and finely pare the rind from the lemon in one piece, then squeeze the juice from the lemon. Then follow up by slicing the mushrooms.
Now, break the broccoli into small florets; halve the French beans, and blanch the beans and the broccoli together in boiling salted water for about 4-5 minutes. Then drain and refresh under cold running water.
Now bring the stock to the boil in a large sauce pan and keep at barley simmering point.
Follow up by heating the oil in a large heavy based saucepan, and add the onion and cook for about 3-5 minutes until beginning to soften and tender.
Now stir in the rice and saffron, if using, season well and add the wine, pared lemon rind, 30 ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice and ladleful of stock.
Cook gently and stirring intermittently until the stock is absorbed. Continue adding the stock, a ladleful at a time as each addition is absorbed.
As soon as most of the stock has been added and the rice is creamy (after 15 minutes), stir in the mushrooms, broccoli, French beans and a little more stock.
Then cover and simmer for a further 5 minutes, or until the rice is just tender and most of the liquid absorbed.
Finally, remove the lemon rind and check the seasoning and sprinkle salt and pepper and serve the Mushroom risotto recipes with any grated cheese of your choice.
