Both times I made this I used one big onion, more mushrooms, and brown rice. I have been living without a meausuring cup, so I estimated all the ingredients. But, what a great recipe base it was for me! It tasted so full of flavor and the people I made it for where saying, "Que rico!" in Spanish (I'm in Spain)which is one of the best food compliments one can get. Thank you; this is a fun, easy, cost effective recipe.

This is a GREAT tasting Risotto and so easy to make!! Everyone loved it and I will be making it again. I didn't have quite enough chicken stock so I added some vegetable stock to it. Wonderful flavor. Thanks Good Cook for sharing, I look forward to trying some of your other recipes. :-)

This sounds delicious, but would appreciate not having to convert amounts.
