1/2 oz (15 gr) dry porcini mushrooms, soak in warm water for 1 hour or until soft
5 cups (approximately 1 liter) chicken broth, warm to a simmer in a small saucepan
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 + 2 tablespoons (45 + 30 gr) butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely diced
1 bunch Italian parsley, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups (300 gr) arborio rice
1/4 cup (60 cc) dry white wine
salt and pepper
4 oz (115 gr) parmigiano reggiano cheese, freshly grated
The rice will be ready in about 2 more minutes, when al dente (firm but not too soft or overcooked). Cooking time may vary. When the risotto is ready, top with the rest of the chopped parsley. Serve at once.
In a saucepan put the extra-virgin olive oil and 3 tablespoons (45 gr) of the butter. Turn heat to medium. When the butter starts foaming, add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes soft.
Add the mushrooms (reserving the water)  . . . .
. . . . and half of the parsley, and sauté for few minutes.
Add the rice . . . .
