Meyer Lemon Mushroom Risotto (Gluten-Free)

A good risotto is a thing of beauty, a delight to the palate, and a joy to the stomach. During my travels in Italy a few years back, risotto was one of the dishes that never let me down. I tried risottos of every conceivable type and description. One of my favorites was a mushroom risotto infused with hints of lemon. My efforts to duplicate that particular risotto have culminated in this recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
6 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons butter, in small pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound portabella mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 pound porcini or crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 large shallots, chopped
1 medium garlic clove, minced
2 cups arborio rice or medium-grain white rice
⅓ cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons fresh Meyer lemon juice
4 teaspoons grated Meyer lemon peel
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Sea salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions:
In a saucepan, warm the broth over low heat.

In a medium stock pot or a Dutch oven, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil, over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms and liquid, and set aside.

Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet, and stir in the shallots. Cook 1 minute until shallots are clear, but not brown. Add garlic and cook until aromatic.

Add rice, stir well to coat with oil. Cook about 2 minutes, until the rice turns a pale, golden color.

Pour in wine, stirring continually until the wine is fully absorbed. Add 1/2 cup broth to the rice, and stir until the broth is absorbed.

Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring continuously, until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from heat, and stir in butter, mushrooms and mushroom liquid, parsley, chives, lemon juice, lemon peel and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Fabulous! My boyfriend and I loved it so much, he's requested that I make it for his family this weekend! :-D His favorite part was that it made so much of it, he got to eat it again and again!

Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one. I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it! So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day... I was taking so...

Hey all so ever since about a week ago I felt a sharp pain in my upper right quadrant, followed by a minor hotflash and it hurts to press on my right side.

Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
