Instructions to make Radicchio and Mushroom Risotto:
  1. Wipe the dirt off from the surface of the mushrooms using a tightly wrung out towel. Cut off the hard part of the stems, and cut into 1 cm cubes.
  2. Cut the radicchio into small pieces, and mince the shallots. Remove the core of the garlic, and mince.
  3. Pour the chicken stock into a pot, and simmer over low heat without bringing it to a boil.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and the garlic into a different pot, then saute until fragrant. Add the mushrooms, and briefly stir-fry. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and the butter to the same pot. Add the shallots (or onion), and stir-fry until lightly browned.
  6. Set aside a handful of radicchio, add the rest into the pot, and stir-fry.
  7. Add the rice, and stir-fry until it becomes translucent. Add the white wine, and cook until the alcohol is evaporated.
  8. Add 1 ladleful of the chicken stock into the pot, and simmer over low heat while stirring with a wooden spatula.
  9. When the liquid starts to evaporate, repeat Step 8 to cook through the rice.
  10. When you have about 2 ladlefuls of chicken stock left, add the sauteed mushrooms and the radicchio, which was set aside earlier.
  11. Turn off the heat when the rice becomes al dente. Add the cheese, and stir. Taste it, and adjust the flavour with salt (if necessary) and pepper.
  12. Serve on a plate, sprinkle with the minced parsley, and then it's done.
  13. The radicchio / red-leaved chicory is often used in risotto or pasta in Italy. Its unique bitterness becomes mild after cooking.
  14. Note 1: Adding the mushrooms and a small amount of radicchio at the end gives a nice texture to the dish.
  15. Note: You can use only one kind of mushrooms, but I recommend using a few kinds. It will add more flavour and texture.

Olive oil, for instance, is loaded with monounsaturated fats which are known as the good fats that battle the effects of bad cholesterol. It can also be good for your skin as it is a superb source of vitamin E. If you currently are consuming a lot of fresh fruits and leafy greens, you may want to think about where you’re getting them and if it’s the best source. If you can opt for organic foods, you can avoid the problem of eating crops that may have been sprayed with deadly pesticides. If you can locate a good local supplier of fresh fruit and leafy greens, you can also consume foods that have not lost their nutrients due to storage or not being picked at the right time. To sum up, it is easy to start making healthy eating a regular part of your daily lifestyle.
