A woodsy, nutty risotto that is perfect for having friends over for a casual dinner party.
Super. Not for everyone howerver, Bu wasn't enthused. This recipe has a scent of bitter flavor and may not be something that kids or picky adults would go for. If you like walnuts then I'm sure you'll appreciate this. I used the exact ingredients it called for and it came out great. - 12 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm into Toasted Orzo, so add the orzo just as onions and mushrooms are finishing, when orzo is lightly browned add the broth. When the broth is absorbed add 1/4 cup grated parmesan and serve! Yummy! - 09 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made the recipe as written, and it made a ton. I will definitely cut the recipe in half next time. I'll also omit the walnuts. They did not compliment the dish at all and stood out oddly among the ingredients, texture and flavor-wise. Also, I'll turn the heat down while cooking the onions and mushrooms. The "medium-high" heat was a bit too hot and my dish ended up with a slightly scorched flavor because of it. With these adjustments, it will be a delicious side dish. - 14 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
