This Creamy Vegan Mushroom & Sage Risotto is extremely simple to make with very few ingredients and the perfect comforting dinner night in or to share with family/friends for a dinner party.

It is absolutely packed full of flavour and I think it will really impress anyone that can have a “normal” risotto with dairy!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 500 g chestnut mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 140 g frozen peas roughly 1 cup
  • 2 tbsp dried sage
  • 1 litre veg stock
  • Coconut fat use all the thick cream at the top of coconut milk can
  • 350 g risotto rice (I use Arborio)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast optional
  • Pepper


  • Prep the red onion and crushed garlic
  • Heat a pan on a medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic, red onion and a pinch of pepper and fry for a minute or two
  • Meanwhile roughly chop the mushrooms and prepare the stock
  • Add the mushrooms and frozen peas to the pan along with the dried sage and cook down for a couple minutes until the mushrooms have softened
  • Now add the veg stock, coconut fat and rice and stir until combined
  • Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer placing the lid on the pan for 25 mins making sure to stir every 10 mins
  • Finally for an optional extra try stirring through 2 tbsp nutritional yeast at the end before serving for a cheesy taste!


You could always stir through spinach or even roasted butternut squash cubes if you wanted to add more colour and flavours.
