Risotto aux Champignons

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Carolyn Kamberlane

This is an authentic french recipe, translated from one of my cookbooks. This was the 1st risotto I ever made, and I found it was easy. I make it often for my husband the mushroom lover.

Looking at the comments on this recipe, I think that there is not enough stock. I think you need about 350ml / 100g of rice, which would mean that if you are going to use 500g of rice you would need about 1800ml of stock.
