Recipe Notes

I did not add any additional salt. The salt in the broth was enough for our taste.


I reserved a few sautéed mushrooms to garnish.


Reheat: Place the risotto in a pot over medium-low heat, and add warm broth, about ¼ cup of broth for 1 cup of risotto, heat for a few minutes until the rice warms up. If the risotto is still quite thick, you can add a splash or two more broth, as needed, to loosen it
