Instructions:

Risotto is an Italian rice dish made by slowly stirring hot liquid into rice until it is creamy. Arborio rice holds up well to this technique and is the rice of choice, but regular short-grain rice also works well. Spray 3-quart saucepan with nonstick cooking spray. Cook mushrooms and onions in saucepan over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender. Stir in rice. Cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in wine and 2 cups of the Vegetable Stock. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1 cup of the stock. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until most liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining stock, 1 cup at a time, until rice is tender and mixture is slightly thickened. Stir in remaining ingredients. 6 servings
