In this Nutricook recipe, sautéing the mushrooms to release the water really intensifies the flavour. The mushroom soy sauce balances the dish; there is no need to add salt. You can find the mushroom soy in most stores, or online; otherwise, you can substitute it with mushroom oyster sauce.
- 500g of chestnut mushrooms finely chopped (keeping 4 to serve)
- 2 tsp of vegetable oil
- 2 shallots finely diced
- 1 ½ cups Arborio rice
- 3 cups of warm vegetable stock
- 2 tbsp mushroom soy sauce
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan
- Salt & pepper
- Parmesan shavings (use a vegetable peeler to cut fine slices)
- 4 sliced fried mushrooms (Slice the mushrooms and fry in a shallow pan with a teaspoon of oil, set to one side ready to serve)
- 1In a food processor or Nurtibullet blitz the mushroom.
- 2Using the sauté function on the Nutricook, heat the pot, add the mushrooms, occasionally stir until all the water has evaporated.
- 3This should take around 8 minutes. (Mushrooms contain a lot of water; you need to allow all the moisture to evaporate to intensify the flavour.)
- 4When the mushrooms resemble a thick paste, remove from the pot and set to one side.
- 5With the pot still on the sauté setting, add the oil and when smoking add the shallots, garlic and stir for a minute.
- 6Next, stir in the rice, stir to coat with oil, then add the vegetable stock, mushroom paste, soy sauce and grated parmesan.
- 7Season to taste, add the pot lid and seal, ensuring the pressure valve’s closed.
- 8Set the manual timer to 8 minutes on high pressure.
- 9When the programme is complete, let out the pressure manually and remove the lid, check the taste, season more if required.
- 10Finally, serve in deep bowls topped with parmesan shavings and the prepared fried mushrooms.
