Red Wine and Goat Cheese Risotto with Carmelized Mushrooms

Oh. Em. Gee. That's really all I have to say for this recipe. I could've eatn an entire saucepan of this stuff. It was so. Good. You need to make this. Like yesterday. You won't be disappointed.

Risotto can be intimidating. I know I was scared the first time I made it. But honestly, it's super easy. The worst part is that it's a bit time consuming as you have to stir it a lot, but it's not that bad! Even with that, this dish is totally worth it.

Red Wine and Goat Cheese Risotto with Caramelized Mushrooms-adapted from How Sweet It Is
Total Time: 30 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/4 cups arborio rice
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 3-4 cups chicken broth
  • 6 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large skillet, heat one tablespoon oil and one tablespoon butter over low heat, then add mushrooms. Let caramelize for 10-15 minutes.

While the mushrooms are cooking, heat a large saucepan over medium heat and heat the vegetable oil and butter. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add rice, tossing to coat in butter and oil and stir for 3-4 minutes. Add wine, stirring every few minutes until all liquid is absorbed. Once absorbed, add one cup stock, stir and let absorb like you did with the wine. Continue 2-3 more times until stock is absorbed. This should take about 15 minutes. Taste to determine if rice is cooked to your liking, if not, add one more cup of broth.

Reduce heat to low and stir in goat cheese, salt, pepper and cooked mushrooms.
