  • 6 cups chicken stock (divided)
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 1 lb portobello mushroom (thinly sliced)
  • 1 lb white button mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  • 2 1/2 shallots (diced)
  • 1 1/3 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 4 tbsp fresh chives

  • In a medium saucepan, heat up the broth on medium-low heat. Once warmed, set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add in the mushrooms and cook until soft, then set aside.
  • In a skillet, the remaining olive oil and the shallots and cook for 1-2 minutes. Next, add the Arborio rice, making sure to coat every grain in oil.

Once the rice is al dente, remove from the heat and add in the mushrooms, butter, chives, and cheese, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
