Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium pot, heat the broth over low heat and simmer while you prepare the rest of the dish.
  2. In another medium pot, heat 1 Tbl. olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic, and saute until soft and translucent, stirring often to prevent browning. Add the quinoa and cook for a few minutes, stirring, until the grains are coated in oil and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until evaporated. Ladle 1/2 cup of hot broth into the quinoa, stir and simmer until the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Continue the process, adding 1/2 cup broth at a time, until the quinoa is fully cooked and there’s no more broth, about 25 minutes. This is your risotto.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a small saute pan, add the shiitake mushrooms and cook, until browned. Season with salt and pepper, transfer to a bowl and set aside. Repeat with the trumpet mushrooms.
  5. Stir the shiitake mushrooms and Parmesan cheese into the risotto. Spoon into 4 serving bowls and top with the trumpet mushrooms. Serve immediately, with additional Parmesan cheese for sprinkling.
