Preparation of Fresh Porcini Risotto

Add the dried porcini mushrooms, in this way we will hydrate the dried porcini mushrooms, directly in the broth, which in the meantime will give the broth an amber color and a very intense flavor.
Let the vegetable broth boil for about 20 minutes and start toasting the rice. In a large saucepan, melt the butter with olive oil and brown the chopped half onion.
We pour and mix the rice, making it toast for a few minutes. Once the rice is roasted well, blend with half a glass of white wine.
Now add the sliced champignon mushrooms, drain the porcini mushrooms from the broth and add them to the rice. We begin to add the broth to the rice, little by little, and mix.
We keep adding the broth and stirring until the rice is cooked. It will take about 1520 minutes.
Finally, we add the rice with the butter and add some grated Parmesan to taste. Finally, add some chopped fresh parsley and bring our Fresh Porcini Risotto to the table!
