Culinary Arts: Creamy black rice risotto, porcini & truffle

Written by

Vegan food was the fastest growing culinary trend of 2018  as the world is embracing compassionate eating - for animals, human health, and the environment.

Our chefs have put together some delicious vegan recipes that we will reveal throughout the coming months. Enjoy them!

The recipe

10 people 259 kcal per person



500 g black rice (riz venere)
100 ml red wine
150g white onion
1.5 l vegetable stock
500 g silken tofu
20 g powdered porcini mushrooms
20 g black truffle
olive oil


1. Finely dice an onion and sweat in a pan with a little olive oil. Add the rice and stir for several minutes.

2. Deglaze with the red wine and continue to cook on a low heat.

3. Once the red wine has reduced, add the vegetable stock little by little and let the rice cook for about 20-30 minutes.

4. In the meantime, blend the tofu and add the powdered porcini. If you cannot buy porcini powder, use porcini mushrooms and blend to a powder.

5. Once the rice has cooked to an “al dente” texture, add the tofu mixture to obtain a creamy consistency. Season with salt and pepper and serve on to a plate.

6. Shave a little black truffle over the top and serve immediately.
