This creamy vegan mushroom risotto is exactly what you need if you crave a delicious and comforting Italian recipe. Give it a try!
Rice is one of the staple foods in my pantry. I love making rice pilafs, risottos, stuffings for different veggies and even adding it in soups! I have quite a lot of rice recipes on my blog so check them out if you’re looking for inspiration.
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!
Flavored with white wine, herbs, and nutmeg, this easy mushroom risotto recipe is just perfect for when you crave a comfort meal. It’s made with budget-friendly ingredients and easy cooking techniques and no special equipment is required.
