Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes 

Serves: 6


  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth, divided
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lbs or cup of white, portabello or shiitake mushrooms sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 3/4 cups arborio rice or other risotto rice
  • 1/3 cup sliced Parmesan cheese
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of baby spinach leaves, optional


  1. Bring stock to a simmer in a saucepan.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in medium sized saucepan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add mushrooms, onions and garlic and sauté about 10 minutes.
  4. Add the rice and stir to combine.
  5. Add white wine and bring to a boil and then reduce liquid by half (about 5 minutes).
  6. Wait until the stock is almost completely absorbed before adding the next ½ cup. This will take about 20 – 25 minutes.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley or chives.
  8. Add simmering stock, ½ cup at a time, stirring constantly to keep the rice from sticking to the pan.
