This is one of my favorite wintertime dishes. It’s hearty, flavorful and comforting. The wild mushrooms I tend to use for this recipe are either shiitake or porcini. This time I used shiitake. Not only do I love the flavor of these mushrooms but their nutrition profile as well. Did you know the shiitake mushroom is a symbol of longevity in parts of Asia? It’s been used medicinally for over 6,000 years.
I served the risotto over fresh baby spinach which I highly recommend. The sundried tomatoes add a sweetness to round out the smoky flavor of the mushrooms. Hope you like it
