The Essential Italian Cookbook for Vegans

I recommend this cookbook!

Today’s recipe combines two of my favorite ingredients: rice and mushrooms. I was inspired by the traditional Italian risotto recipe, which is not originally vegan but can be easily veganized. I used nutritional yeast instead of Parmigiano and white wine for the perfect flavor! The result was just as I wanted, a creamy and easy to make vegan mushroom risotto!

  1. This was delicious! Loved the texture and didn’t miss parmesan at all. Sprinkled lots of nooch on top and it was just perfect. Thank you for inspiring me to cook more plant-based recipe! My husband loves your recipes too!
