  • Porcini mushrooms and risotto

    We had dinner with friends on the weekend and they made a risotto with dried porcini mushrooms. It was really good and I'm amazed at how strong the porcini mushrooms tasted. She soaked the mushrooms most of the day and then added it to the risotto as it cooked. It had a wild, earthy flavor that I really enjoyed.

    I love porcini mushrooms and I love mushroom risotto. It's actually my favorite kind of risotto. Did she use chicken or vegetable stock in the risotto?

      I love mushroom risotto too, but I have never tried it with porcini though. For the stock, I normally use chicken stock. What does everyone else use?

        She used chicken stock, Raizin but with porcini I imagine the taste would come through even with a vegetable stock. I think the mushroom's flavor is strong enough that you don't taste the stock.

          Porcini - the King of Mushrooms. I make a wild mushroom risotto with porcini that is outstanding. There is no need to soak the dried porcini for 'most of the day'. They reconstitute in 30-60 minutes. Just be sure to save the soaking liquid -- strain it and use it for part of the stock in the risotto. I typically use chicken stock, but any well flavored stock will work. I usually make mine the traditional way, stirring by hand in a saucepan.

          Tiger Lily makes a great mushroom risotto in her pressure cooker. I'm sure she'll be along soon to share it with you.


          OMG! I decided to blog!

            Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

            Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
