    Eismeer's Note:

    Creamy, cheesy, heavenly! You could prepare this risotto with fresh mushroom (boletus) as well, use about 300g and fry them with butter for a couple of minutes. You may need to adjust the liquid amountregarding the risotto. I actually prefer dried porcini as they tend to be more aromatic and have better texture. You can substitue parsley with sage or thyme. The amount of broth and soaking liquid you'll need is bound to vary according to the type/brand of rice you'll use. And yes, it's all about the frequent stirring :)!

      Heat olive oil in a skillet, add garlic, chopped porcini mushrooms and chopped shallots.
    3. 3
      Add risotto rice and let fry for about 2 to 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add white wine (or Prosecco) and stir frequently until wine is absorbed by rice.
    5. 5
      Now alternately add hot(!) vegetable broth and procini soaking water. (Best 1 ladle at a time until liquid has been absorbed by rice.).

      Creamy, cheesy, heavenly, Indeed! The porcini mushrooms are the star of this recipe, they added so much earthy flavor. I made as written and added the soaked porcinis in with the sauteed garlic and shallots just before adding the rice. This is a keeper and will be made often and added to my "Best Of 2012 Cookbook" Thanks Eismeer for posting this delicious recipe. Made for Spring 2012 PAC.
