- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 40g dried forest mushrooms (boletus, oyster mushroom, black fungus, ceps) (or your favorite mushrooms)
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms (white, brown, portabella, oyster or porcini)
- 1 large leek, finely sliced/diced
- 1/3 pepper diced
- 1 cup of cooked peas
- 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 cup of white wine
- 1 cup risotto rice (+-250g)
- 3 Tbsp nutricional yeast
- Salt and pepper to taste
Put the dried mushrooms into a large bowl and pour over 1 litre boiling water. Soak for 30 mins. Remove the mushrooms, and reserve the liquid. Chop the mushrooms roughly.
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the sliced leek and garlic. Saute gently until they are soft. Add the rice and the mushrooms, pour in the wine, simmer and keep stirring, until the liquid is absorbed.
Add small amounts of the reserved stock by the ladleful, always stirring. When the rice is plump and tender add the peas, yellow pepper, salt, fresh cracked pepper, and the nutricional yeast.

looks yum. Reminds me I haven’t had risotto in ages!
Now is the time then 😉
Congratulations!. É um excelente Blog!. É diferente, é único!. Gostamos e vamos segui-lo!.
Obrigada Tony ??
Such a beautifully colourful dish – and i love risotto, but have never made it before. I have a box of risotto sitting in my store cupboard; I think it is time to use it with your recipe!
It’s not as difficult as you may think, hope you enjoy this one ?
Me too Rina ?
Gorgeous photos. This looks delicious!
Thanks ? I really love risotto and mushrooms so for me this is the perfect combination 😉
Looks so delicious ! Love the combination of peas & mushroom !!
Thanks 😉 it’s really delicious, try to give it a go one day 😉
Beautiful photos. I can’t get any fancy mushrooms where I live sadly, so I use a plain variety fresh, and lots of dried mushrooms. They’re definitely wonderful in risotto.
It will work with any mushrooms ?
Will give this a try one of these days
Hope you enjoy it 😉
Looks delicious! Mushroom dishes are so warming during the winter. I have all the ingredients to make this, except the nutritional yeast. I’ll be sure to try it out.
You can do it without the nutritional yeast, it’s better with it but still ok without it 😉
This looks so good!! Gonna have to try it!!
Great? let me know how it goes
Wow that looks fabulous
Thanks, hope you give it a go ?
I DID!!! Thank you so much. I had all of the ingredients
Great ? did you enjoy it ?
Oh my gosh yes. Thank you so much. I am sooo tired of the same recipes. I needed something new. I used the left over mushrooms to make some veggie patties just now. With the left over risotto. I just piled it all together with corn and rice and sweet potatoes and carrots and onions and made patties and cooked them in the oven. Sooo good.
Sound delicioussss ? glad you enjoyed it!
Yes thank you so much! I am interested in finding another veggie patty that has other kinds of beans if you have one
I wish i could find an easier “cheese” recipe. The one i have takes so long to cook. The potatoes and carrots and nutritional yeast all blended. It’s very hard on my arms (due to the muscle disease) tastes like real cheese and it is good on pizza which i wanted to make tomorrow. I wish I could find this already packaged!
I don’t know where do you live but here in the Uk we have some already packaged cheese.. I can send you some links if you want to
I live in Florida in the USA. I’d love the links to see if I can find any here.
I will email you tomorrow ?
