Sauté the Mushrooms: In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the Organic Sliced Portabella Mushrooms, and cook until they are tender and lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then remove them from the skillet and set aside.
Cook the Risotto: In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and olive oil. Add the chopped onion and cook until it becomes translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and Arborio rice, stirring until the rice is well-coated and has a slightly translucent edge, about 2 minutes.
Add the Liquids: Increase the heat to medium-high and pour in the white wine, stirring constantly until it is mostly absorbed. Reduce the heat to medium and start adding the warm broth, one ladle at a time, stirring frequently. Wait until the liquid is almost completely absorbed before adding more broth. Continue this process until the risotto is creamy and the rice is al dente, about 18-20 minutes.
Final Touches: Return the sautéed mushrooms to the skillet and stir them into the risotto along with the Parmesan cheese and fresh thyme. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing all the flavors to meld together. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
Serve: Spoon the creamy risotto into bowls, garnish with fresh parsley if desired, and offer extra Parmesan for sprinkling on top.
