Serving Size
about 1 1/4 cups

3 cups low sodium vegetable broth

½ cup white wine

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 ½ cups sliced white (button) mushrooms

1 cup steel cut oats (uncooked)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage

salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the broth and wine in a small pot over low-medium heat until warm, but not boiling.
  2. While the broth mixture is warming, heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, then add the onions and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the garlic and mushrooms to the onions and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Stir the oats into the vegetable mixture, and add ½ cup of the warm broth mixture into the pot.
  5. Stir frequently over medium heat until all of the moisture is absorbed. Repeat, adding ½ cup of the broth mixture at a time, until all of the broth mixture is used, and the oats reach a creamy consistency (approximately 20-25 minutes).
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings. Then, divide the risotto into four bowls, and garnish with fresh sage.
