Feel like a chef with Riso Gallo and follow this quick and easy recipe to make a delicious black garlic and wild mushroom risotto. Serves 2.


175 g Riso Gallo My Risotto Perfetto Porcini Mushroom
450 ml water
3 black garlic cloves (diced)
1 small onion (diced)

Add 3 tbsp of oil to a heated pan, add diced onions, diced garlic, soaked mushrooms and chopped basil leaves. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes tossing throughout.

Finish the risotto with a knob of butter, grated grana Padano and chopped mushrooms.
