Directions

  • 1 Clean mushrooms by wiping with dry paper towel; do not wash. Remove mushroom stems; coarsely chop and set aside. Cut mushroom caps into 1/4-inch thick slices. (If large, cut into bite-sized pieces.) Set aside.
  • 2 Pour broth into 3-quart saucepan. Add chopped mushroom stems, thyme, bay leaf and soy sauce; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 30 minutes.
  • 3 Strain broth; discard stems, thyme and bay leaf. You should have about 6 cups broth; if not, add water.
  • 4 In 3-quart deep heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add mushroom slices and onion; cook 5 minutes. Add rice; stir to combine. Cook 1 minute. Add wine; heat to boiling. Cook until liquid is reduced by half.
  • 5 Add 1/2 cup broth; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until rice has absorbed liquid. Adding 1/2 cup broth at a time, continue cooking and stirring 20 to 25 minutes until all broth has been added and absorbed. When done, rice should be just cooked and slightly chewy.
  • 6 Stir in cream cheese and grated Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • 7 To make fried sage leaves, in 8-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add sage leaves, a few at a time, in single layer; fry 15 seconds (do not brown leaves). Remove leaves from skillet; sprinkle with dash of salt
  • 8 Serve risotto in individual shallow bowls. Top each with a few sage leaves and Parmesan cheese shavings.
