Mountain Risotto with Mushrooms

It takes quite a time on the stew to make a regular Risotto. In the mountains you always pursue to use as little fuel as possible. That’s why we boil the rice first until it’s almost ready.

Put dried unions and mushrooms in water for about 30 min, depending on what type of mushrooms you are using. You can of course use different varieties of mushrooms, funnel chanterelle taste really good and they only need to be in water for 10-15 min. read more about dried mushrooms here.

1. Boil rice and take it of the stew.
2. Fry the mushrooms in a pan, start without oil.
3. Add oil and onions. Fry until the onions get soft.
4. Add 1/4 dl of water and 1/2 mushroom extract cube.
5. Add the rice and boil together, add more water if you like. And some salt and pepper.
6. Take the pan of the stew and add Parmesan cheese.

Maybe you’d like to add some meat like ham or sausage.

Another variant is to use different types of vegetables and different taste of extract cube and add some spices.
