Serves: 8


  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and minced
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 1⁄3 cups short-grain white rice, uncooked
  • 3 3⁄4 cups water
  • 6 cups sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning


  • Drizzle the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and sauté the minced onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the uncooked rice to the saucepan and turn to coat in the oil, garlic, and onions. Stir over heat for 2 minutes. Add the water, mushrooms, and seasonings to the saucepan, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Risotto is done when the rice has absorbed all of the liquid and is sticky but cooked through.
