Ingredients
2 tsp olive oil
2 Portobello mushrooms, sliced into 1-inch pieces
salt and pepper, to taste
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
2 1/2 cups white wine, like chardonnay

MTC-8010
6-8 servings
Cook Time: 40 minutes

Directions
Add the olive oil to the inner pot of the cooker and allow it to heat briefly on the STS function. Add the mushrooms, salt, and pepper to taste; cook until they start to soften. Add the garlic and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add 1 cup of the vegetable broth and ½ cup of white wine. Add the rice, basil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir continuously until the liquid is almost completely absorbed. Repeat adding 1 cup of the broth and ½ cup of the white wine until the liquid is absorbed and the rice becomes soft; around 30-40 minutes.

Once tender, add cheeses and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the heavy cream and bacon. Serve in bowls with a garnish of more crumbled bacon.
