A classic and easy vegan risotto with mushrooms and parsley. Made with a good and delicious olive oil – and with no parmesan but still very creamy.
This is a simple and easy risotto recipes that can be made easily with asparagus, spinach, leek or pumpkins too.

The good olive oil have a big role for the soft and creamy risotto result. My risotto is inspired from the danish book about oil ‘En passion for olivenolie’Colombani also shared the recipe here. You can serve this meal like it is or with a crispy salad on the side depending on the season. This recipe is made for 3-4 persons and one portion use to be great for one person.

No parmesan is used in this recipes. I wanted to try a healthy version of this traditional italian recipe. And I think the taste was so good and intense – but still light and healthier. Making a classic risotto with mushrooms in the recipe, you start with the mushrooms. Then, you make the rice and mix with the mushrooms before serving. As you can see on the picture, I took half of the mushroom mix and decorated my portion just before serving. Chop some parsley and drizzle with salt and pepper too.

Vegan risotto mushrooms – made with a good olivenolie

vegan risotto recipe no parmesan

It’s quite serious when I describe the ingredients list with a really good olive oil in high quality. After years and years of testing I’ve learned that it is essential using a oil of good taste. But that is not only when you makes risotto but almost every kind of dinner.

After I recommended the book ‘En passion for olivenolie’, I get to know about qualities of oils and I learned which difference it can make. I’ve made a danish recommendation here abut the book. Additionally, the last part of the book is filled with the greatest recipes. Both recipes we know from the cold Scandinavia – but also from the south of Europe. Tomato salads, risotto, oven baked vegetables, a big range of pesto recipes, bread, starters, salads, soups etc,. All recipes that deserves attention.
