Portobello Risotto with Mascarpone Recipe

Portobello mushrooms add a beefy flavor to this creamy classic. Each serving is topped with soft, buttery Mascarpone cheese, which makes it extra special.—Carmella Ryan, Rockville Centre, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (14 ounces) reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup uncooked arborio rice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup white wine or additional reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup sliced baby portobello mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, heat water and broth and keep warm. In a large saucepan, saute shallots and garlic in oil for 2-3 minutes or until shallots are tender. Add the rice, thyme, salt and pepper; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat; stir in wine. Cook and stir until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  • 2. Add heated broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly. Allow the liquid to absorb between additions. Cook just until risotto is creamy and rice is almost tender. (Cooking time is about 20 minutes.)
  • 3. Add mushrooms and Parmesan cheese; stir gently until cheese is melted. Garnish each serving with a heaping tablespoon of Mascarpone. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.
