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.

Recipe
Vegetarian Kung Pao Tofu with Broccoli and Peanuts
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Tofu stir-fried with vinegar is a traditional folk remedy for malaria and dysentery. Peanuts are believed to improve the appetite and lubricate the lungs.
Kung Pao chicken is a famous dish that most likely originated in the Sichuan province of China. Its history is rather fuzzy but most people agree that it was named after a governor, general or other official from the late nineteenth century. Whatever its true origin, this dish has been popular for decades in Chinese restaurants everywhere and is practically synonymous with takeout. In this vegetarian version, tofu and assorted vegetables replace the chicken. The tofu and vegetables are all chopped into bite-sized pieces, in keeping with tradition.
