Risotto with Cremini Mushrooms
Risotto con Creme di Funghi
by James Belardo

This is one our favorite versions of risotto, a delicious creation that will satisfy the savory cravings and fill your stomach with joy. While basic risotto is oh-so-delicious, this offshoot with Cremini mushrooms may just knock your socks off!

Ingedients
1 – 1.5 cups Arborio Rice
1/2-1/4 cup onions, finely diced*
2 – 3 cloves garlic*
1 – 1.5 cups sliced Cremini Mushrooms
3/4 – 1 cup white wine
4 – 6 cups homemade chicken stock
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 or 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano
1/2 -3/4 cup shredded Jarlsberg Cheese
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
Salt (to taste)

*(shallots can be used instead of the onions and garlic combo)

Garnish
Sprinkle with chopped flat-leaf parsley.

Directions
1. Heat olive oil and butter in a dutch oven. Sauté onions and garlic (or shallots) until translucent and garlic begins to brown.
For #Jarlsberg and Cremini #Mushroom #Riaotto , 1st fry the onions & garlic in EVOO & butter

2. Add Arborio rice and mix well until all grains are coated with the butter and oil. Cook until the grains absorb the liquid and you can begin to smell the rice toasting.
W/Onions become translucent add #Arborio #rice for the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto

3. Add the Cremini mushrooms, mix with rice. Cook for another few minutes until mushrooms start to soften.

4. Add wine, mix well and heat until the liquid is absorbed by the rice.
Then some white #wine after the mushrooms become tender to the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto

5. Following the same procedure, add liquid and wait for the rice to absorb before adding another cup of heated broth. Before the last cup of broth you can add the Pecorino Romano and Jarlsberg cheeses, along with the black pepper and a bit of sea salt.
As Arborio rice absorbs #wine add some broth, 1 cup at a time for the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto  the final stages, add the #Pecorino Romano to the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto Then the #Jaslberg, of course for the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto A touch of sea salt and cracked black pepper to the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto

6. Add last cup of broth and cook until the risotto is as to the consistency of your liking.
It will need more broth as it soaks it in for the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto And finally some Flat Leafed #Parsley to the #Jarlsberg Cremini #Mushroom #Risotto
