How to make it
- Put the dried mushrooms in a medium bowl and pour the hot water over them.
- Soak until softened, about 20 minutes.
- Remove the mushrooms, reserving the soaking liquid, and chop them.
- Strain the liquid through a paper-towel-lined sieve into a medium saucepan.
- Add the broth to the pan and bring to a simmer.
- In a medium pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat.
- Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Add the chopped mushrooms, the rice, and the salt and stir until the rice begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes.
- Add about 1/2 cup of the simmering broth to the rice and cook, stirring frequently, until the broth has been completely absorbed.
- The rice and broth should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed.
- Continue cooking the rice, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb it before adding the next 1/2 cup.
- Cook the rice in this way until tender, 25 to 30 minutes in all.
- The broth that hasn't been absorbed should be thickened by the starch from the rice.
- You may not need to use all of the liquid, or you may need more broth or some water.
- Stir in the butter, pepper, and goat cheese.
- Serve the risotto with grated Parmesan.
