Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan (2 ounces), plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until absorbed.
  3. Add half the broth (1 ¾ cups) and simmer, stirring once, until absorbed, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the remaining broth and simmer, stirring once, until the rice is tender and creamy, 8 to 10 minutes. (If the rice is not cooked through and the mixture is dry, add more broth and continue to cook until tender.)
  4. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Stir the Parmesan, cooked mushrooms, and the remaining tablespoon of butter into the rice. Sprinkle with the parsley and additional Parmesan, if desired.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
