Mushroom and Summer Squash Risotto Recipe

My easy, vegan Mushroom and Summer Squash Risotto, makes a lovey warm weather dish. Constant stirring is not required, making this a perfect risotto to prepare for a quick weeknight meal.

Summer squash stands in well for the cheese adding color, texture and moisture. Just chop up a few key ingredients, give it an occasional stir and it’s ready to serve! Yum!

1 vegan bouillon cube, crumbled

1 cup Arborio rice

½ cup peeled and diced yellow summer squash

Chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, for garnish


1. Put the onion, mushrooms, 1⁄2 cup water and crumbled bouillon cube into a medium-sized saucepan.

2. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes, or until soft. Add more water, 2 tablespoons at a time, if needed, to prevent sticking.

3. Decrease the heat to medium-low (or low) and add 1 cup of the water to the onion-mushroom mixture. Stir in the rice, cover and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the water is almost absorbed.

4. Stir the risotto thoroughly; add 1 more cup of water, cover and cook for 8 to 10 more minutes, or until the water is almost completely absorbed.

5. Cover and let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Serve.
