Truffle Risotto

Truffle Risotto
A dish for a special occasion that will guarantee some swooning at the dinner table! Simple yet heavenly.

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onions
sea salt
freshly ground white pepper
freshly ground black pepper
6 cups chicken stock
1 tsp minced garlic
2 cups Arborio rice
1/3 pound assorted mushrooms, such as fresh white or brown Clamshell mushrooms, or Trumpet Royale mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed, and chopped
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
3 Tbsp chopped green onions, green portion only
Medium black truffle, for shaving


Use a large sauté pan to heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the onions soften, about three minutes. 

Add the stock and the garlic. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and continue to simmer for another 5-7 minutes.

Add the rice and simmer for about another 10 minutes, stirring constantly. The mixture should become creamy and bubbly in about 8 minutes.

Stir in the cream, the butter, the green onions, cheese. Simmer for about another 2 minutes, stirring the whole time.

Remove the skillet from the heat and spoon the risotto into the center of about eight bowls.


Garnish with freshly shaved black truffle.
