Mushroom Risotto

If you are in my Liift Up and Fly group on Facebook, then you have access to my doc with all my favorite meal plan approved recipes – but I wanted to take it a step further and I have started to share the actual cooking process for these meals on my IG Stories. (Fridays!)

My whole point in doing this is to prove that healthy food tastes good, it’s easy to make, and also – you don’t have to give up your favorite meals! As a foodie myself, these were the truths that I had and had to learn how to re-programming those thoughts.

Today, I am sharing with you my Mushroom Risotto Recipe!

Mushroom Risotto

The first time that I made this meal for my husband he thought that it was some fancy meal that only the most Profession Kitchen Slayers could produce and I’m not even going to lie, I allowed that belief to inflate my ego and never shared just how simple and easy it is to make.

Spinach Risotto
In this recipe, I do use Short Grain Brown Rice instead arborio which gives a different texture but the flavor is still absolutely amazing.

1 medium Yellow Onion, diced.
2 cloves garlic, minced.
1 tsp Coconut Oil
3 C Chicken Broth (Or beef)
1 1/2 C Brown Rice.
1 C Parmesan.
8 oz Spinach, chopped.
8 oz Mushrooms, shopped.
Himalayan Salt

Bring broth to a boil in a sauce pan.
In a skillet, saute onions and garlic together until transparent.
Add rice to skillet mix around for about 2-3 minutes, the rice will smell nutty.
Add boiling broth to skillet, cover and reduce.
Once there is no more liquid (review rice cooking directions for guidelines)
Add Parmesan.
Fold in Spinach and Mushrooms.
Mix in Salt and pepper.


You can easily add in meat or even serve this as a side, It’s really adaptable which is why it’s one of my favorite meals! On Friday, I had some steak on hand and actually added that in – though my favorite combination is with Spinach and Mushrooms alone.
