  • 2 Tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 large mushrooms white or crimini, sliced (about 3 ounces or 1 heaping cup after slicing)
  • 1 Tbsp sage , dry
  • ½ tsp salt , more to taste
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ cup apple cider or juice
  • 1-½ cups arborio rice , uncooked
  • 3 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • cup parmesan cheese , shredded or grated
  • ½ cup cream


  • Heat a Dutch oven or heavy pot to medium heat.
  • Add butter and oil and let butter melt.
  • Add mushrooms and sage and stir.
  • Cook for 5 minutes, turning mushrooms halfway through to brown on both sides (uncovered).
  • Add apple cider and cook 5 more minutes uncovered to reduce liquid (still on medium heat).
  • Add rice, stir, and cook 1 minute (still on medium heat).
  • Add broth and cook 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently. Stir constantly closer to the end of the 10 minutes so rice doesn't stick to the bottom of pan.
  • Turn heat off and add pumpkin, cream, and parmesan. Stir to incorporate.
  • Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
