Finding an alternative to arborio rice
Try Carnaroli rice as an alternative to Arborio.
2.
Add 400ml of the cold vegetable stock together with the saffron. Season, and bring gently to the boil stirring occasionally
3.
Once the pan is boiling evenly, remove from the heat, cover with a tight fitting lid or foil if necessary
4.
It is important that the pan is covered by the lid or the foil to keep in the steam, which completes the cooking of the rice. Set aside for 30 minutes
5.
About 5 minutes before removing the lid from the rice, heat a little oil in a frying pan and lightly sauté the wild mushrooms, season and set aside. Remove the lid from the rice and taste
6.
The rice should be cooked and slightly sloppy in texture. If it is too thick add the remaining 25ml of stock
7.
Finally, stir in the grated Parmesan and chopped parsley, spoon into individual serving dishes and top with the sautéed wild mushrooms
