WWDH - Mushroom Risotto
This week, Kayte chose Mushroom Risotto from Modern Classics 1 as our Donna Hay recipe. You can also find it online here. I wasn't too sure about this one at first, as I can be a bit picky about risotto and in the distant past, I did have a bad experience with a gloggy pumpkin risotto.
However, this risotto was really tasty, and came together with ease. The mushrooms really made it by adding "meat" and flavour. I used Swiss brown and oyster mushrooms, but you can use whatever you have on hand. The recipe said to use dried porcini mushrooms as well, but I hate the taste, smell and texture of those, so I left them out.
To see what Kayte, Margaret, Chaya and Sarah thought of this week's dish, visit their websites.
