1

Start the risotto

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a large frying pan [large sauce pot] over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the grains start to turn translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 seconds.
Add the umami powder and 4½ cups [6½ cups] water, season with salt and pepper, and bring to a boil, then reduce to a vigorous simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, 13 to 18 minutes, adding more water as needed to reach the desired consistency. Meanwhile, prepare the mushrooms and spinach.

Prep and cook the mushrooms and spinach

  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the garnish.

Prep the garnish; finish the risotto
