1.   Mushroom Risotto Vegan Dinner Recipe

Mushroom Risotto Vegan recipe is one of the My Foodie Boxe’s favorite vegan recipes. It is delicious and a perfect meal to be served during the first course or as a side dish with the main course.

 

Ingredients you need:

Mushrooms l Thyme l Peas l Garlic l Onion l Oil or Butter l Rice l Wine.

How to cook?

Step:1

Place the peas in a bowl of water that is filtered to thaw out. Saute the mushrooms, garlic, and thyme until it gets browned and set them aside. It is better to cook vegetables separately and add them later to avoid the vegetable getting mushy.

Step:2

Now sauté the onions and remaining garlic and thyme in oil or butter, whatever suits you. Once onion and garlic get golden, add the rice and stir and toast lightly. Pour in some wine and keep stirring.

Step:3

Now when the wine is evaporated, add hot stock to the pan. Only add a cup at a time. Once it starts getting evaporated, then add more. You will not need more than 6 cups, though.

Keep stirring until it becomes a smooth and creamy-textured liquid.

Add more broth if necessary to get desired tenderness. This process will not take more than 20-35 minutes.

Step:4

Once the rice is tender and ready, remove it from heat and add the mushrooms, garlic, lemon juice, and fresh ground pepper and stir well to coat. Feel free to add some more butter in the end to add more richness.

And voila! Your Mushroom Risotto Vegan Recipe is ready to be served.
