How to make it
- In a small saucepan, bring 2-3 cups chicken stock to a boil. Maintain this low boil while cooking the entire dish.
- In a larger pot, add 1/2 tbsp margarine and 1 tbsp olive oil. Bring to a medium heat and add chopped onion, celery, mushrooms, and apple, and minced garlic, stirring well to prevent browning.
- Note: If using canned mushrooms, wait to add until half-way through the broth process in step 6.
- Add arborio rice to the pot and stir until well coated and somewhat translucent, dropping the heat to medium-low.
- Squeeze in lemon juice and add a few splashes of vinegar, continuing to stir until both are absorbed into the rice. Toss in a pinch of salt.
- Begin adding boiling stock to the pot, one cup at a time, slowly and firmly stirring the rice mixture, working the starches from the rice. Only add additional stock once the previous ladle-full has been absorbed. (15-30 minutes)
- Once rice has reached a texture slightly softer than "al dente," and the appearance has become thick and creamy, remove pot from heat.
- Stir in cheeses and remaining 1/2 tbsp of margarine, then cover and let rest for about 2 minutes.
- Serve garnished with a dash of thyme, and always with a crisp salad to help cut the richness.
