This Vegan Mushroom Risotto is a very nourishing recipe. It takes a long time to cook because the liquid must be absorbed little by little. This slow cooking method is how to get a very creamy risotto without burning the rice at the bottom of the pan.

- 8 cups vegetable stock
- 1 cup vegan dry white wine
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 ¼ tbsp vegan butter
- 1 leek finely chopped
