Autumn is Here! Easy Mushroom Risotto

I love rice, and I love mushrooms. This dish is a very simple take on the fancier Risottos you can get in most higher end restaurants. Risotto calls for Arborio rice, but I used Calrose rice, the Egyptian staple and easier to find version! Use the recipe as a guideline to make your own version with your favorite flavors. I also love adding grated carrots and frozen peas for a more colorful dish. What is your favorite Risotto flavor?

1 cup Calrose Rice
4 cups Vegetable Broth (or any other kind of broth or water)
1 Whole Onion, Diced
2 cups Sliced Mushrooms
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt and Pepper
2 Tbsp Butter

Saute onions and mushroom with salt in the butter until soft and the onions are translucent. Add in the rice, and stir until coated. Add in the broth, lower heat and stir. Add in the pepper and continue stirring on and off for 20 mins. Add in the cheese right before serving. Viola!  


  1. Thanks for the recipe and would love to do this! Do you have the calorie information on this receipe? I just finished doing the 3 Day Military diet and this looked good. I plan to use brown rice on your recipe to make it healthier. For more information regarding the military diet, here's a great link

  4. Weight loss pills are not kidding drugs that have certain symptoms that should be checked and one could check its reactions just with the assistance of a specialist. A portion of the reactions of this appetite suppressant are sickness, a sleeping disorder, uneasiness, mind flight and tipsiness. Out of all the reactions, it is sleep deprivation that makes more inconvenience. However, it could be controlled, in the event that you play it safe. The drug isn't taken later than 6 PM at night. On the off chance that you play it safe then you could keep away from sleep deprivation.

  5. Be that as it may, the issue is that most data that you get about these foods just incorporate a not insignificant rundown of various fat burning foods with possibly a short portrayal. Such a not insignificant rundown will just influence you to overlook half of the food that is on the rundown.
