Risotto with Mushrooms
Very Good 4.8/5
(13 ratings)

A delicious creamy Risotto preferrably done with chanterelles, but any of your favourite mushrooms will work! You could also replace the chicken stock by vegetable broth for a vegetarian version.

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.
