Mushroom-Parsnip Risotto

with Walnut & Arugula Salad

Cooking time

20 minutes




840 /serving

The flavour combination of golden-brown mushrooms and sautéed parsnips is a surprising and delectable one, marrying the savoury umami of the creminis with the natural sweetness of the root vegetable. Cook up this happy union in a creamy, cheesy risotto, made in a flash but comforting for hours after you enjoy it—because nothing quite warms the heart like risotto. The arugula and crunchy-walnut salad you’ll serve on the side adds just the contrast you’ll crave.

Start the risotto
In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and rice; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the rice is slightly translucent. Add the demi-glace and 3 cups water (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, 12 to 15 minutes, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is al dente (still firm to the bite).

Mise en place & toast the walnuts
While the risotto cooks, roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. Juice the lemon. Heat a large, dry pan on medium. Add the walnuts and toast, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer immediately to a small bowl. Reserve the pan.

Cook the mushrooms & parsnips
While the risotto continues to cook, in the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the parsnips; season with ½ the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Add the mushrooms; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown.
