Slow Cooker Mushroom Risotto with Peas from Bakerette

Slow Cooker Mushroom Risotto with Peas
Love this idea for Risotto with Mushrooms and Peas, made in the slow cooker.  (Photo from Bakerette.)

(I don't know if anyone noticed the lack of posts, but I had a couple of unplanned days off from both my blogs due to a bout with food poisoning that was definitely not much fun.  I got it from a restaurant, and my sister Pam and her baby grandson were also sick.  So there wasn't any cooking or blogging going on yesterday, but it's nice to be back!)

I'm a convert to the idea of making rice in the slow cooker, and when I saw this recipe for Slow Cooker Mushroom Risotto with Peas from Bakerette, I thought it sounded like such a perfect dish for spring.  If you're not familiar with Risotto, it's an Italian rice dish where short-grain rice is slowly cooked on the stove, with liquid stirred in a little at a time resulting in a creamy dish.  Jen gets the creaminess without all that stirring by using the slow cooker, and I think this sounds like a must try!

Ingredients for this recipe: 
Olive oil, sliced mushrooms, sliced shallots or onion, garlic, Arborio rice, chicken broth, dry white wine, ground black pepper, fresh or frozen peas, Parmesan or Asiago cheese.
