    Risotto is a traditional Greek and Italian rice dish made from a Greek medium-grain white rice, traditional variety Carolina. The technique for making it is called the risotto method, which involves stirring small amounts of hot stock or broth. Risotto is special because the rice gives up some of its starch to make the dish so creamy. Adding butter and parmesan helps but it's actually the stirring itself that knocks some of that starch off the grains. Risotto is a Mediterranean rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. Risotto in Italy and Greece is normally the first course served before the main course.

    How healthy is risotto? : Risotto is a great comfort-food dish, yet it also can be loaded with fat from the addition of butter and cheese. It can be the main course, if you're feeding vegetarian friends, as the taste of our porcini mushrooms is delicious !! Rice is composed of carbs, with small amounts of protein and virtually no fat. Porcini mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, protein, copper, potassium, zinc and selenium. All essential minerals to a healthy diet. Greek porcini mushrooms are also rich in dietary fiber and are low in both saturated and unsaturated fat. Dietary fiber helps stimulate digestion, relieving constipation problems. Unlike the common variants found in the supermarket, porcinis are mycorrhizal—because of this complex relationship with their surroundings, they're not easily cultivated. Thus, depending on where you live, they could be hard to find fresh and more expensive to purchase.

    What meat goes well with mushroom risotto? : Mushroom risotto on its own is a winner but adding succulent pork fillet (or tenderloin) cooked with garlic and fragrant rosemary just takes it up a notch. You could easily swap the pork out for beef fillet or even chicken breasts, if you were that way inclined.

    Storage Instructions: Store in clean, dry and cool place. In a pan over medium heat add olive oil & the rice Stir until the rice is lightly toasted for 2-3 minutes, then add 400ml of broth. Cook, stirring periodically to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan until the broth has been absorbed, about 3 minutes. Repeat with another 400ml broth until the liquid has been absorbed, 5 minutes more. Test the doneness of the rice. Remove the risotto pan from the heat and vigorously stir in the Parmesan cheese and butter. Season to taste.
