  • .7 oz dried porcini mushrooms
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil + 2 Tbsp. vegan butter
  • 5 cups baby Bella mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup shallots chopped
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan butter
  • 1-1/2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup vegan parmesan
  • Parsley to garnish


  • In medium pot, bring vegetable broth to boil and reduce heat to low. Add porcini mushrooms, cover and cook for 4 minutes. Remove porcini mushrooms and slice.
  • In large pot over medium heat, warm avocado oil and butter mixture. Add porcini mushrooms, baby Bella mushrooms, shallots and onions; cook for 6 minutes. Add garlic and thyme and cook another 2 minutes. Transfer mixture (including liquid) to bowl and set aside.
  • In same large pot, combine 2 tablespoons vegan butter with uncooked rice for 1 minute (avoid browning rice). Add salt, pepper and white wine. Cook until liquid absorbs.
  • Return mushroom mixture to pot with rice. Slowly pour in 1/2 cup hot vegetable broth and stir until mostly absorbed. Add another 1/2 cup and so on until rice absorbs all of the liquid (this step takes roughly 35 minutes). Stir in vegan parmesan.
  • Remove thyme sprig, spoon into bowls, garnish with fresh parsley and serve.


Chef’s tip: In step No. 4, make sure liquid absorbs completely before adding more hot broth. This is VERY important!
