Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 4 people


  • 6 cups bone broth (chicken broth or stock)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2- ounce dried porcini mushrooms (rinsed in strainer)
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onions (chopped fine (2 cups))
  • 10 ounces cremini mushrooms (finely chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine (or dry vermouth)
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


  • Bring the broth, water and soy sauce to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the porcini mushrooms and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the porcini are tender, 5-10 minutes. Then remove the porcini with a slotted spoon and finely chop them. Leave the broth to simmer on the stove top.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large sauce pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add olive oil. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the cremini mushrooms, porcini mushrooms and garlic. Saute until the mushrooms are tender and the juices evaporate, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the arborio and saute for a few minutes. Add the wine; cook until the liquid is absorbed, stirring often, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of hot broth; simmer over medium-low heat until the liquid is absorbed, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Continue to cook until the rice is just tender and the mixture is creamy, adding more broth by cupfuls and stirring often, about 30 minutes.
  • Stir in the Parmesan and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Enjoy!


Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to three days. 
To reheat, add a splash of broth and heat on the stove or in the microwave.
