Black Trumpet Mushrooms have a rich, nutty taste and are perfect in a risotto. This Black Trumpet Mushroom Risotto is made with fresh foraged Black Trumpet Mushrooms. Nevertheless, this kind of wild mushroom is perfect to dry, and some people even think that they are better when they are dried. Therefore, you are more than welcome to use dried Black Trumpet Mushrooms or other wild mushrooms for this Black Trumpet Mushroom Risotto recipe.

Course Dinner
Servings 2 people


  • 2 ½ cup (6 deciliters) vegetable stock, or any stock you like
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup (2 deciliters) risotto rice (Arborio rice)
  • 3.5 ounces (100 grams) fresh black trumpet mushrooms, chopped
  • ½ cup (1 deciliter) white wine
  • 1 ounce (30 grams) parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 handful parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper


  • Heat up the vegetable stock in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to very low.
  • In a large pot, melt 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • Add onion and saute until fragrant (30 seconds). Add rice and cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat (do not let the rice take color).
  • Add black trumpet mushrooms and white wine. Let it cook until the wine has evaporated.
  • Add 1/4 cup vegetable stock at a time to the rice. Make sure not to add new stock before the stock is evaporated/absorbed. Continue until all stock is used. The risotto needs to cook for a total of 20-30 minutes. If you run out of stock before the risotto is done, add instead a bit of boiling water.
  • When the risotto is done, remove from heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter, grated parmesan cheese, and parsley. Put on a lid and wait for 2 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

  2. White wine is mentioned in the instructions but not the ingredients. So… how much wine is used?
