Nutritional values

The alliance of rice and mushrooms lowers elevated cholesterol levels and thus protects the heart and vessels. The abundant vitamin D strengthens the bones. Whether as an appetizer or main course, risotto with mushrooms is also the perfect meal if you are under a lot of stress.

You prefer risotto without wine? You can also prepare the recipe completely with vegetable broth. If you prefer an even stronger mushroom flavour, add some dried and soaked porcini mushrooms to the risotto and replace the vegetable stock with some filtered soaking water. Instead of the sage you can also use a large portion of chives.
