1/4
cup olive or vegetable oil
2
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
4
garlic cloves, finely chopped
2
medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
1
cup uncooked Arborio rice or regular long-grain rice
1

3 1/2
cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-ounces carton), warmed

  1. Cover porcini mushrooms with warm water. Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour or until tender; drain.
  2. Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook parsley, garlic and onions in oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are tender.
  3. Stir in rice. Cook, stirring frequently, until edges of kernels are translucent. Stir in porcini, shiitake and crimini mushrooms. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are tender.
  4. Reduce heat to medium. Add 1 cup of the broth. Cook uncovered about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until broth is absorbed. Stir in remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, cooking about 3 minutes after each addition and stirring occasionally, until broth is absorbed, rice is just tender and mixture is moist.
  5. Stir in cheese and vinegar.
