Gluten Free Buckwheat & Mushroom Risotto

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 shallots, roughly chopped
  • 150g buckwheat
  • 2 tsp Herbamare® Bouillon dissolved in 500ml boiling water
  • Black pepper, to season
  • Fresh coriander, to garnish
  • Optional: grated parmesan to garnish (not suitable for vegetarians/vegans)

How to make Gluten Free Buckwheat & Mushroom Risotto

1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Cook the mushrooms, garlic and shallots.

2. Add the buckwheat and cook for a couple of minutes before adding 125ml of Herbamare® Bouillon. Keep stirring the risotto and allow the liquid to be absorbed. Continue stirring, gradually adding the rest of the Bouillon until all of the liquid has been added and absorbed.

3. Turn off the heat and leave to simmer until the buckwheat is tender.

4. Season with black pepper, and garnish with coriander and parmesan just before serving.
