Vegan Mushroom Risotto

We’ve been enjoying risottos for 2 straight nights now, and wanted to share this easy-to-prepare (but not exactly quick) Vegan Mushroom Risotto recipe with you all.

The ingredients are super simple + easy to find.

We used Nutritional Yeast to make the risotto cheesy. We also added a bit of Coconut Milk – it made everything extra creamy.

Let’s go!

To saute mushrooms

To prepare rice


Step A : Saute the mushrooms

  • Set a pan over medium heat. Add oil. Once it's hot, add shiitake + button mushrooms and stir-saute for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add salt + pepper and saute for 2 more minutes.

Step B : Prepare the rice

  • Set a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add oil. Once it's hot, add garlic + onion. Stir-saute for 3-4 minutes, or until translucent.
  • Next, add arborio rice and stir-saute for 2 minutes.
  • Now, add rice wine vinegar and stir-cook until it's evaporated.
  • Then add 1 cup of veggie stock. Stirring continuously, cook until much of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add another cup of veggie stock. Stirring continuously, cook until the liquid is absorbed. Repeat this step until you've used all 5.5 cups of stock. This process generally takes 25-30 minutes.
  • Next, add the sauteed mushrooms + nutritional yeast + coconut milk + freshly chopped cilantro. Stir-cook for about a minute. Turn off the heat. Serve.
