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)


  • 1
    In a food processor or Nurtibullet blitz the mushroom.
  • 2
    Using the sauté function on the Nutricook, heat the pot, add the mushrooms, occasionally stir until all the water has evaporated.
  • 3
    This should take around 8 minutes. (Mushrooms contain a lot of water; you need to allow all the moisture to evaporate to intensify the flavour.)
  • 4
    When the mushrooms resemble a thick paste, remove from the pot and set to one side.
  • 5
    With the pot still on the sauté setting, add the oil and when smoking add the shallots, garlic and stir for a minute.
  • 6
    Next, stir in the rice, stir to coat with oil, then add the vegetable stock, mushroom paste, soy sauce and grated parmesan.
  • 7
    Season to taste, add the pot lid and seal, ensuring the pressure valve’s closed.
  • 8
    Set the manual timer to 8 minutes on high pressure.
  • 9
    When the programme is complete, let out the pressure manually and remove the lid, check the taste, season more if required.
  • 10
    Finally, serve in deep bowls topped with parmesan shavings and the prepared fried mushrooms.
