Mushroom Risotto 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Wild mushrooms are the best non-animal source of vitamin D going and some have the added benefit of vitamins B and C as well. They are also a good source of antioxidants such as polyphenols that have been linked with cancer-risk reduction and antiaging.
To prevent mushroom poisoning, mushroom gatherers need to be very intimately familiar with the mushrooms they intend to collect, including knowledge of the toxic species that look similar to these edible species. Best buy from a trusted health store or supermarket.


Ingredients:
1 cup Arborio rice ( or barley)
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 cups of sliced wild mushrooms,
3 to 4 cups stock - veggie
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
½ cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon of olive oil
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bunch cilantro, rough chopped.


Directions:
1. In a large skillet place oil, shallots and garlic, sauté gently till onion is tender.
2. Add rice and mix well with onion ensuring to coat each grain of rice in the oil.
3. Add the ½ the mushrooms and some stock, stirring constantly, the object is to have the rice absorb the stock before adding more stock.
4. Add seasoning and continue adding stock until rice is 2/3 rds cooked.
5. Add remaining mushrooms and more stock till rice is completely cooked and tender.
6. Add cream and cheese, mix well.
7. Serve with green salad and garnish with chopped cilantro.
8. Cooking the rice will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
Stirring the skillet constantly will ensure the rice stays separate and does not stick

Cool Snack
Looking for a healthy snack idea? Try banana crunch pops. Place a small banana on a popsicle stick, coat with non fat or low fat vanilla yogurt, roll in crisped rice cereal and set on waxed paper. Freeze overnight. Enjoy a low fat, nutritious and cool snack tomorrow.

Recipe
Orange Fruit Nut Truffles
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: This recipe is great in December and during the New Year celebrations. While walnuts are harvested in December, they are available year round a great source of those all-important omega-3 fatty acids.
Walnuts are one of the best plant sources of protein. They are rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. Nuts in general are also high in plant sterols and fat - but mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (omega 3 fatty acids - the good fats) that have been shown to lower LDL cholesterol. Walnuts, in particular, have significantly higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids as compared to other nuts.
