This mushroom risotto is incredibly creamy and lucious. Embedded with soft chewy chunks of dried cranberries and sun dried tomatoes.
Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 2 tbsp non-dairy butter
- 1/4 diced yellow onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 4 cups sliced mushrooms
- Pinch of salt
- 1 15 oz. can coconut milk
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 8 tbsp all-purpose flour
- Pinch of nutmeg
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 2 cups water
- 2 tbsp dried cranberries
- 1 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
- 1/2 cup shredded non-dairy cheese (I used Daiya Mozzarella)
- 2-3 fresh rosemary sprigs
Cream of Mushroom Soup
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Sauté for 3-4 min. until fragrant and translucent. Add celery and cook for 2 min. more. Add mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cook for 5-6 min. until tender and most of the moisture from the mushrooms has cooked off.
Add pepper to taste, coconut milk, vegetable broth, flour, fresh rosemary, and a pinch of nutmeg. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer. Simmer on medium-low for 15-20 min. until slightly thickened. Adjust seasoning as needed.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add rice, 16 oz. cream of mushroom soup, and the rest of the ingredients in a shallow baking dish. Stir to combine. Top with 2-3 rosemary sprigs. Cover and bake for 30 min. Stir. Bake for an additional 10 min. uncovered until rice is tender.
Remove rosemary sprigs before serving. Top with a sprinkle of salt, freshly cracked black pepper, and fresh parsley.
