Cooking time

25 minutes




  • 200g chestnut mushrooms (thinly sliced)

  • 1 shallot (finely chopped)

  • 2 garlic cloves (pressed)

  • 350g arborio rice

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 litre of vegetable stock

  • 100ml dry white wine (optional)

  • Amore Italian Spice Mix (to taste)

  • Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

  • Balsamic glaze (optional)

  • Truffel mayonnaise (optional)

  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)


  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Keep your heat low during the entire cooking time.
  • Add the onion and garlic. Fry for 2-3 minutes, until softened and the aromas are released.
  • Stir in the rice and make sure it is all coated in the oil and well mixed. Wait for about 2 minutes before you move on to the next step.
  • If you are adding wine, this is the moment to do it: pour it in, stir well and wait until the liquid has been absorbed. If you are not adding wine skip this step.
  • Add the sliced mushrooms, the desired amount of spice mix and stir everything really well.
  • Add about 100ml of stock, stir well and wait until the liquid has been fully absorbed. Continue adding the stock in this manner, until you have used up all the liquid and the rice has achieved a tenderness to your liking: soft and creamy or al dente, with a slight hard bite.

    Buon appetito!
