Paul Heathcote's mushroom risotto recipe is given a rich boost with the addition of truffle oil and Parmesan. This mushroom recipe makes for a fantastic risotto to make utilising a number of kitchen cupboard staples to make a delicious meal. For the mushrooms, use a selection of wild mushrooms or button mushrooms, and if making this for a vegetarian, replace the Parmesan with a cheese free of animal rennet.
