If you’re new to making risotto, it can be a little intimidating at first. Here are some tips to help you make the perfect creamy mushroom risotto:
1. Use Arborio rice. This type of rice is short and starchy, which gives risotto its signature creaminess.
2. Use a large saucepan. You’ll need plenty of room to stir the rice and add the broth.
3. Add the broth slowly. Adding it all at once will result in mushy rice, so take your time and add it one cup at a time.
