This week for the Gutsy Cooks Club Mushroom Risotto was on the menu from The Illustrated Kitchen Bible.
We've definitely made our fair share of risotto recipes as G loves risotto especially mushroom risotto. And given we had dinner plans out on Friday and our monthly supper club dinner on Saturday I knew we needed to get this one done during the week and this is simple enough to pull off on a Thursday so I went for it.
It also served good timing as the snow has finally came back to the Northwest after quite a hiatus which meant G took a personal day to hit the slopes while I slaved away in the school house. But I still knew he'd be psyched to come home to the smell of mushroom risotto on the stove.
This is really a simple version. I decided to do a mushroom combo of fresh baby bellas and dried porcinis.
I then added the rice for few minutes before adding the heated broth 1 ladle at a time.
