Risotto-Stuffed Portobellos

“I invented this dish one night when I was having last-minute guests. I ran to a local farm stand for some amazing produce and created this using fresh portobellos and leftover risotto. My friends still ask for the recipe!” Rian Macdonald — Powder Springs, Georgia
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup uncooked arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine or additional broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (4 to 4-1/2 inches), stems removed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • In a small saucepan, heat broth and water and keep warm. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the celery, carrots and onion in oil until crisp-tender. Add the rice, shallots and garlic; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat; stir in wine. Cook and stir until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add heated broth mixture, 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.) Remove from the heat; add Parmesan cheese and green onions. Stir until cheese is melted.
  • Spritz mushrooms with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fill each with 1 cup risotto mixture and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and cheese is melted.

    For a recipe that was thrown together at the last minute, this is absolutely fantastic! I used koshihikari (sweet sushi rice) and subbed green onion for the shallots (because that's what I had on hand), and the dish turned out amazing! Every one of my dinner guests asked for the recipe!
