I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never been that into cooking. Are you now thinking “girl, then what are you doing with a blog focused on vegan recipes?”.  Well, I realized the only way to stay healthy is to cook for myself. By cooking most of my own meals, I know exactly what’s going into them. Don’t get my wrong, if a fabulous chef decided she/he wanted to cook healthy and delicious vegan food for me daily, I’d be all over it but that’s not going to happen so I do it for myself.

Lucky for me, I love creating recipes (maybe not always cooking them) and I enjoy finding fun and easier ways to create some of my old pre-vegan favorites. I also love sharing these recipes with others in case they’re looking for the same thing.

A 10 Minute Risotto… Really?

Yes… kind of. Okay maybe it’s not exactly risotto but my dish is creamy and tasty and I bet if you told people you cooked this risotto for an hour they would probably believe you. I usually don’t have an hour to keep an eye on risotto like you would traditionally do so I came up with a little hack to mimic the creaminess of risotto using hummus at the very end.

Easy Vegan Mushroom Risotto

I know! How awesome is hummus? I’ve been doing this for years and realized I need to share this with you so you can have some tasty easy vegan mushroom risotto in no time as well. If you’ve read my Vegan Meal Planning post, you know I pre-cook the rice at the beginning of the week so all I have to do is cook up some onion and mushrooms, heat up the rice and add some hummus and I have a yummy and healthy meal on the table in 10 minutes!

  1. WAaaaaaa!!!!! Such a good idea!!! We have a running joke in our family about the Hubs wanting risotto and me thinking he’s crazy because he has no idea what goes into making it. I’ll have to give him this version!

    1. Thank you so much Julie! One day I was in the kitchen looking for a way to make my rice creamy and there was some hummus right in my face – been doing it since then – so easy!

  2. Long Time No See! Sorry about that! I’m also using my tea WP Account at the moment…sorry about that, too! But it’s Jennifer over at MyBlissfulJourney.com. Risotto – I need more of it in my life! This sounds and looks AWESOME!!!!

  3. Mushrooms are by FAR my favorite food on the planet and risotto? In under 10 minutes? Count me in! 🙂 Thank you for sharing. I am definitely going to try this.

  4. I love how easy this is! I sometimes have leftover rice in the fridge, and I end up throwing it out, either because I forget about it, or I’m sick of making the same stir-fries. I’m going to try this next time!

  5. Wow, this is a great cheat! I love risotto! And I actually don’t mind making it…because usually I’m drinking all the wine that doesn’t make it into the dish. 🙂 But this is perfect for those nights when I want that creamy risotto taste and texture, but I don’t have time.

    1. Oh, I didn’t think about drinking the wine while cooking risotto – that changes everything! I have never tried making real risotto before, the adding of more broth for that long was so daunting to me but a little help from wine might not make it so bad! Thanks Jenn!

  6. I love making risotto, but sometimes time just isn’t on my side. Thanks for making a quick and easy recipe.

    1. So soon came around haha. Made this tonight for supper. And despite not having leftover rice, it still came together pretty quickly. I didn’t have plain hummus though! I almost panicked and then found some sundried tomato stashed at the back of the fridge and it saved the day. It was creamy and delicious. This will definitely become a staple in our meal rotation.

    1. I’m so glad you liked it Shell!Thanks so much for letting me know! I really enjoy making it when I want something tasty but don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. 🙂

  7. I just want to say how much I love your tag line of “eat kind.” That’s what motivates and maintains my mostly-vegan diet (I have to be honest and admit I still eat some cheese). Thinking of how so many animals are raised in and die in torturous and grim conditions is so painful that it overcomes my desire to eat meat. Thank you for focusing on site on kindness.

    And, I am excited to try the risotto!

    1. Ann, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. No one has told me they liked my tagline before so you made my day!
      Being kind to animals (and humans) is totally what motivates me too. Cheese is so hard – I totally understand. The main thing to remember is that you’re doing your best and you’re helping so many animals with whatever you’re doing. I hope you like the risotto! It’s so easy to use the hummus to make it creamy. 🙂
