Foodie Post: Mushroom Risotto

Hello lovelies! How are you today? ♥ It's a wondeful new week, and it's pretty much the start of summer now that May has started. I've been planning outfits for the whole month (not done with that yet though), because I need to get some posts covered before travelling next month. There's quite a bit of prepping to do before I leave, but I'm so, so excited about travelling. It's been too long since I was properly abroad - July 2014 being the last time I was really anywhere. I will do a bit of a post about where I'm going later on, but probably some of you already know where I'm heading.

Today, however, I'm sharing this delicious little recipe with you. It's one of my go-to dishes, and it can be easily modified to suit your dietary needs.

Mushroom risotto 
4 portions 

1 onion
1 clove of garlic
300 g mushrooms
7 dl chicken broth  
25 g butter
3 dl risotto rice
1 dl dry white wine
2 tbsp double cream
0,5 tsp thyme
1 dl strong cheese, grated 

Peel and chop onion and the clove of garlic. Chop (and rinse) the mushrooms. Bring the broth to boil in a pan. Cook the mushrooms in a pan so that the liduiq comes out of them. Add in the onion, garlic and the butter. Let cook for a little bit. Add in the rice and stir until the rice is glossy. Add a bit of hot broth, and let it soak into the rice. Add the rest of the broth in small portions. Lastly, add the wine and cream and bring to a boil. Season the risotto with thyme and cheese. The rice is cooked enough (al dente) when it is firm but chewable when you taste it.

This is such an easy recipe, and you can make a ton at the same time. Granted, it takes a while to cook, but the end product is super delicious. This is naturally gluten free if the broth you use is without gluten. Also, you can do this without wine if you're not into using alcohol (although, it won't have any in it since it gets boiled), and for a vegan version just use veggie ingredients. I'm sure this makes a bomb vegan dish, and I really need to try that out.

What's your go-to dish? Let me know in the comments below!

That's all I have for you today, but I will be back very soon with another post. I have couple of makeup posts and a ton of nail art pictures to show, but I really want to focus more on the outfits since I've been feeling so inspired by that lately. (As you may have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, where I post daily outfits!) I hope I can get that to show properly here on the blog as well. If you have any requests for posts, tell them in the comments below. I'd love to hear what you would like to see here!

Have a fabulous week ♥
