A note about serious food allergies

What's better than a bowl of creamy, cheesy, and hearty risotto? The answer is nothing. Our triple mushroom risotto packs a major umami punch with porcini-shiitake broth and roasted shiitake and button mushrooms on top. Enjoy this and thank us later. Tip: Why remove the shiitake stems? Those stems are too woody and fibrous to eat. However, here we use them to add flavor to broth.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • Meat lovers! If using proteins, cook in a large non-stick pan with 2 tsp. olive oil. If using shrimp, pat dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using steaks, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Add to risotto as desired, or serve on the side.

  1. 1

    Make Broth and Prepare Ingredients

    Stem shiitake mushrooms and cut caps into 1/4" strips. Reserve stems.

    Cut button mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Peel and mince shallot.

    Mince parsley, stems and leaves.

    Halve baguette lengthwise and halve again at an angle.

    Once water is boiling, remove from burner and stir in dried porcini mushrooms and shiitake stems. Set aside 5 minutes, then strain through a wire-mesh strainer into a heat-safe bowl. Discard porcinis and shiitake stems. Reserve pot.

    While mushrooms soak, roast remaining mushrooms.

  2. 2

    Roast the Mushrooms

    Place button mushrooms and shiitake caps on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into mushrooms.

    Spread into a single layer (some overlap is ok) and roast in hot oven until mushrooms are tender, 10-12 minutes.

    While mushrooms roast, start risotto.

  3. 3

    Start the Risotto

    Return pot used to boil water to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and parsley (reserve a pinch for garnish) to hot pot. Stir constantly until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

    Add rice and stir constantly until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes.

    Add 1 cup hot mushroom broth. Rice should just be covered by broth. Stir constantly until nearly all broth is absorbed.

  4. 4

    Finish the Risotto

    Add 1/2 cup hot mushroom broth and stir constantly until broth is nearly all absorbed.

    Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes.

    Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more "bite" or crunch, it's done. There may be broth left.

    Remove from burner and stir in half the roasted mushrooms (reserve remaining for garnish), butter, Parmesan, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Cover and set aside.

  5. 5

    Toast Baguette and Finish Dish

    Drizzle baguette slices with 1/2 tsp. olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place directly on oven rack and bake until lightly browned and toasted, 5-7 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping risotto with remaining mushrooms and garnishing with reserved parsley. Bon appétit!
