  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. In a large saucepan, heat the chicken or vegetable broth over low heat. Keep it warm but not boiling.
  2. In a separate large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sauté until translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they are soft and browned.
  4. Stir in the Arborio rice and cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice is lightly toasted.
  5. Pour in the white wine and cook until it is absorbed by the rice.
  6. Begin adding the warm broth to the rice mixture, one ladle at a time. Stir constantly and allow the broth to be absorbed before adding more.
  7. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to al dente, about 20-25 minutes.
  8. Stir in the crumbled blue cheese until melted and well combined.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve the risotto hot, garnished with fresh parsley.
