ONLY USE MUSHROOMS YOU CAN BUY IN A RELIABLE SUPERMARKET
1. Risotto with Mushrooms
Mushrooms are a wonderful ingredient and are available in supermarkets all year round. No wonder that mushroom risotto is one of the most popular vegetarian risotto varieties. I have a simple tip for you: buy light and dark mushrooms, put the light mushrooms in the risotto and cook them with the rice. These mushrooms give the taste and your risotto stays bright and white. The dark mushrooms you take as toppings: fried in olive oil, refined with or without cream/soy cream, at least with freshly cut parsley colored and flavored to match these mushrooms on your risotto and complete it visually and taste of the finest!
2. Mushroom Risotto with fresh Mushrooms
The risotto with fresh mushrooms is a real highlight, please note my following tips for buying and preparing fresh mushrooms:
- Buy the cleanest, freshest mushrooms possible.
- Dry brushing of dirty mushrooms.
- Always process mushrooms quickly.
- Add some of the mushrooms to the risotto, use the remaining fried mushrooms as a topping on top.
- Always fry mushrooms at high heat, this contributes to the positive taste formation.
If the mushrooms are very dirty, fill a large bowl with cold water, stir in 2 tablespoons of flour or corn starch and the juice of a whole lemon and wash the mushrooms in it in a flash. Then wash the mushrooms under running water and dry them quickly. Explanation: The lemon juice (the acid) can loosen the dirt from the mushrooms, the flour binds the dirt.
Suitable mushrooms that you can get on the market in season or always:
- Oyster mushrooms
- Mushrooms light and dark
- King oyster mushrooms
- Porcini mushrooms
- Chanterelles (Reherl/Eierschwammerl)
