Serve the mushroom and pea risotto hot, garnished with extra Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of fresh parsley. Enjoy this creamy and flavorful dish as a main course or as a side dish to complement your favorite protein.


  • For a vegan version, substitute the butter and Parmesan cheese with plant-based alternatives.
  • Add cooked chicken or shrimp for a protein boost.
  • Experiment with different types of mushrooms such as shiitake or oyster mushrooms for a unique flavor profile.
  • Include other vegetables like asparagus or cherry tomatoes for added color and texture.


  • Use a good quality vegetable broth for the best flavor in your risotto.
  • Make sure to continuously stir the risotto while adding the broth to help release the starches and create a creamy texture.
  • Adjust the seasoning to your preference by adding more salt, pepper, or Parmesan cheese as needed.
  • If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat gently on the stovetop with a splash of broth to revive the creaminess.
