Step 1: How To
1. Start by preparing your ingredients. Mince the garlic and dice the onion then place them in a bowl. Next slice the white mushrooms into reasonably fine slices. Also prepare the mixed mushrooms by separating them into individual pieces. Then grate the Parmesan cheese.
2. In a large wok, heat up the oil on a high heat then add the chopped up onion and garlic. Next add all the sliced white mushrooms, hoping they all fit. Then add in the black pepper, the dried basil, the cumin and the salt and stir together. Cook over a medium heat until the mushrooms have turned brown, stirring regularly.
3. Now you can add the white wine and stir it in. Then add the liquid cream and stir that in too.
4. Remove from the heat and using a hand soup blender blend the mixture. You want to make it reasonable smooth (like a soup) which will take a few minutes but don't worry if it isn't completely homogenous. Little pieces of mushroom will actually be quite nice. Once you've got it to a consistency you're satisfied with, return it to the heat and stir.
5. When it's heated through, stir in the risotto rice. Keeping it on the heat and stirring regularly, you'll gradually add the water, about 1 to 2 cups at a time. Makes sure to stir it so that the rice doesn't burn to the bottom of the pan and the liquid doesn't just evaporate off the top. Stirring also releases the starch in the rice which gives it a more creamy texture.
6. Once you've added all the water and most of it has been absorbed, check that the rice isn't hard anymore. It should already have a soft and creamy texture. If it has a slight crunch and there's still liquid to be absorbed that should be fine, but if it's crunchy then add some more liquid and let it cook a little longer.
7. At this point add in the mixed mushrooms and the broad beans. Stir together and let them cook.
8. Then stir in the Parmesan cheese and stir until it's melted.
9. Finally add in the edamame and heat them through, then let the risotto rest for a couple of minutes off the heat and serve!
Step 2: Stuff Your Face
There you go, you've made a risotto from scratch without using any prepackaged soups or stocks (if you're also having to stay away from gluten, you'll know how important that is!).
I hope you enjoy this recipe, be sure to use a white wine you actually like the flavour/smell of!
