Mushroom and Thyme Risotto

IMG_0602This is a recipe I found on the BBC Good Food Website. It made for a wonderful lunch one weekend. This was the first time I made a risotto and it turned out perfectly. It takes time to make, at least 20 minutes once you start adding the broth, but I feel it was well worth the time it took. Here is the link for the original recipe.

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil

350g/(about 6 to 8 palm sized) chestnut mushrooms, sliced

100g/1/4cups quinoa

1l/4 cups hot vegetable stock

175g/1/2cup risotto rice

handful thyme leaves/ 1 tbsp

handful grated Parmesan or vegetarian alternative
