You can use any fresh mushrooms, such as shiitake or portobello, in this recipe. Make-ahead tip: Prepare the risotto, reserving a cup of the broth mixture and leaving the rice slightly undercooked. Cool and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat the risotto just before serving, adding the remaining liquid and fully cooking the rice.
