This year, I’m treating my valentine to a luscious and delicious Porcini Mushroom Risotto!
Not only it is a simple and easy dish, but there’s something undeniably sophisticated and romantic about it!
- 2 ounces dried porcini mushrooms
- 2 cups water
- 3 cups beef broth
- 2 large shallots, finely chopped
- 2 cups arborio rice
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
- 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
If you're in a hurry, you can rehydrate the mushrooms faster by soaking them in hot water. They will soften quickly but will lose some of their flavor.
