Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup basmati rice -- or other long grain
4 cups vegetable broth -- or more as needed
1/2 onion -- chopped
2 cloves garlic -- sliced
handful dried porcini mushrooms
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese -- grated

Heat a cast iron skillet. When hot, add a bit of olive oil. Add onion and garlic and saute until a bit soft. Add rice, saute to get rice covered with oil, and then add 1/2 cup of broth. When the broth is absorbed, add another 1/2 cup and so on until rice is tender and broth is absorbed.

Meanwhile, soak porcini in boiling water until soft. Drain and take all liquid out by rubbing between paper towels. Chop up.

When rice is almost soft, add mushrooms, the butter and Parmesan cheese. Mix well. Sprinkle with truffle oil right before serving. If desired, sprinkle with a bit more Parmesan cheese.
