Silky Smooth Dairy Free Mushroom Risotto Made With Homemade Mushroom Broth

Admittedly, I have been peeling my mushrooms for as long as memory serves, which means I always have plenty of raw materials for making delicious homemade mushroom broth. My basic recipe for it is to take the peelings from a 1/2 pound container of mushrooms, simmer them in 2 cups of water with a bay leaf and some peppercorns for a couple hours, and that will do the trick. Of course you can use any kind of broth you like, but homemade mushroom broth is my personal favourite.

With the addition of some silky dairy free cheese and some dairy free margarine, I suspect that even the most picky eaters at your table will be hard-pressed to resist this dish, especially since it is completely allergen friendly … buon appetito!!
