A very easy way to make a nice, creamy risotto, with no need to add cream of any kind is by putting in a little bit of our new Amandín Organic Onion Soup. This will make the dish tastier and above all creamier. This results in a tasty, original rice dish. While mushroom risotto is a very common dish, this little trick makes it into a triumph.

You can also vary the mushrooms. Now that it’s the beginning of the mushroom season, you have plenty of alternatives to the typical button mushroom: bloody milk caps, chanterelles (sweet and slightly fruity in flavour), boletus (highly prized for their aroma), king oyster mushrooms and lots more.

So the secret of a good risotto, apart from the ingredients, is in how you cook the rice. It has to be simmered close to boiling, allowing the water to be absorbed and to evaporate.


  • 400 g arborio rice
  • 300 g mushrooms (shiitake and button mushrooms)
  • 1 glass of dry white wine
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 l Amandín Organic Vegetable Stock
  • 1 glass of Amandín Organic Onion Soup
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons of parsley
  • 100 g parmesan cheese
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Salt


Step 1

Wash the rice thoroughly and set it aside. Peel and finely chop the onion and the cloves of garlic. Clean and chop the mushrooms. Start heating up the stock.

Step 2

Put a little olive oil and a knob of butter in a saucepan. When it’s melted, add the chopped mushrooms, fry them for a few minutes and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

Add the rice and stir constantly for one or two minutes. Add the white wine and carry on stirring until it’s absorbed.

Step 4

Add a little thyme, stir it and now you can add the onion soup. Stir well for a few minutes and gradually add the hot vegetable stock, one glass at a time.

Step 5

Before taking it all off the heat, grate the parmesan over the pan and sprinkle the parley over it, very finely chopped. Let it stand for a couple of minutes and it’s ready to serve.
