During the Spring and Summer we do a lot of grilling. Heck, we really do a lot of grilling year round since we are in Florida. On the nights that I don’t have dinner in the Crock Pot there is a pretty good chance it is on the grill. That means I am just in charge of side dishes, which is totally doable.

This Crockpot Mushroom Risotto is one of my new favorites to pair with just about anything. It is full of flavor and richness without being too heavy.

How to Make Crockpot Mushroom Risotto

In a saucepan, or in your crockpot if you have one of the ones that is multi-purpose like the Ninja, saute your onions, mushrooms, and garlic in olive oil.

Once sautéed add the veggies to your crockpot along with the other ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours and 45 minutes or high for a little over and hour. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Dairy Free

Unlike many risottos this does not call for cream, making this recipe dairy free when you omit the cheese.  Give this one a try. You won’t regret it!

Storage

Store this in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat and enjoy!

This is a winner. Serve it by itself on a busy night or as a side dish. This Crockpot Mushroom Risotto Recipe is perfect!

    I recently made this in my dutch oven. I sauteed the veg on the stove with some added bacon, and once I’d added the stock and wine, I transferred the pot into the oven on about 160°C for maybe an hour. I have tried many risotto recipes, and this one by far my favourite. So so simple, so much flavour and absolute perfect measurements. Even my partner (who is the cook in the fam, and hard to please) loved it!! Thank you!
