Description

The flavors of this risotto might be traditional (as in risotto Milanese), but the method for making it is anything but. First, you saute the onion, mushrooms, and peas, and then add the rice and broth all at once, rather than in ladlefuls over a period of time, and simmered until the rice is al dente and the liquid is creamy. Saffron, the essential spice, is added at the end, and it imbues the dish with inimitable color and taste.

Ingredients

1/10 gram saffron threads
1 yellow onion
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
150 grams mushrooms
100 grams peas
350 grams medium-grain rice
100 milliliters dry white wine
1 liter vegetable broth
grated parmesan cheese

Directions

1Place the saffron threads in 1/2 cup of warm water and let them infuse the water for approximately 20 minutes.
2Place the oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan and saute the onion for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the peas and saute for another 5 minutes.
3Add the rice to the pan and toast the grains.
4Add the wine and cook until it evaporates.
5Add the broth and cook the rice for up to 20 minutes.
6Add the saffron threads and stir well.
7Add remaining butter and grated Parmesan cheese and stir well. The risotto should have a dense consistency.
8Serve warm.
