Ingredients

  • 3 cups organic chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 portobello mushrooms, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, minced
  • Sea salt
  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 3/4 cup good white wine
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Freshly cracked pepper

Directions

Bring the chicken stock to a bare simmer in a saucepan. Meanwhile, heat the butter and olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until golden, 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, onions and 1 teaspoon sea salt and saute for 8 minutes. Stir in the rice and cook for 2 minutes. Deglaze with the wine and cook until the wine has reduced completely. Ladle in the simmering broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until the rice absorbs all the broth before adding more. Repeat until all the broth has been added and the rice is al dente, about 20 minutes. Stir in the cheeses and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Spoon the risotto into bowls and enjoy.
