Ingredients

For the risotto:

  • 1 large white onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or dairy-free butter)
  • Pinch of kosher or fine sea salt
  • cups arborio rice
  • 5 cups gluten-free vegetable broth
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • cup parsley, chopped

For the balsamic mushrooms:

  • 16 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or dairy-free butter)
  • Pinch of kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Dice onion and garlic and add to large pot with coconut oil and salt. Bring to medium heat and cook, stirring often, until onion turns translucent, about 10 minutes.
  • Pour in arborio rice and toast until grains become lightly perfumed, 2-3 minutes. Pour in vegetable broth, starting with 2 cups, and adding more in splashes as it thickens (I used 5 cups total). Cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring often until risotto is the desired texture (soft and pleasantly chewy). Add nutritional yeast and stir to combine.
  • While the risotto is cooking, cook the balsamic mushrooms. Add sliced mushrooms to a skillet with coconut oil and salt. Bring to medium heat. Cook mushrooms for about 10 minutes, then reduce heat to low and add balsamic vinegar. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add balsamic mushrooms to cooked risotto. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and stir to combine. Serve risotto in bowls.
