Date un tocco giapponese al classico risotto italiano usando i funghi shiitake. Ricco di umami, il quinto gusto fondamentale, questo piatto è un ottimo modo per unire gli ingredienti giapponesi alla cucina europea. Da servire a cena come portata principale o per un pranzo domenicale.


• 20g of dried shiitake mushrooms
• 800ml boiling water
• 2 tbsp oil
• 1 small onion
• 2 cloves garlic
• 350g risotto rice
• 4-5 sprigs of fresh thyme
• 1 tsp each of mushroom and umami seasoning
• 1 low-salt vegetable stock cube
• 125ml dry white wine (we use a sauvignon blanc)
• 20g butter


  1. Preheat Oven to 180°C (350°F/ Gas Mark 4).

  2. In a large bowl/jug, pour the boiling water over the dried shiitake mushrooms and leave for at least 20 minutes.

  3. Remove the mushrooms from the water, squeezing out any excess back into the water. Chop roughly and set aside. Crumble the stock cube into the water.

  4. Heat an oven-proof pan or casserole with the oil over a medium hob. Cook the onion for 5 minutes until it softens then add the garlic and continue to cook for another minute.

  5. Add the rice and stir to combine, continue cooking for 2 more minutes then increase the heat and add the wine. Boil rapidly until the wine has been absorbed and reduced away. Add the stock, thyme and umami seasoning and return to the boil. When the risotto reaches boiling point, cover and transfer to the oven.

  6. Bake for 15-20 mins until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked (it should be fluffy on the outside but still al dente in the middle). Stir in the butter and serve garnished with some fresh thyme leaves.
