Sauteed Spinach:

  1. Saute onions in vegetable oil over medium heat until just translucent. Add chopped garlic and continue to saute for 2 minutes. Add spinach and saute until it begins to wilt. Serve immediately. Season with salt and pepper.

Mushroom Risotto:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and garlic and saute until the onions become translucent. Add the mushrooms, reserving the mushroom juice, and rice to the pan and toss all of the ingredients together until they are thoroughly mixed. Add white wine to the pan and cook until the liquid is absorbed. Add the reserved mushroom juice, 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper and 1/2 cup of chicken stock to the saute pan. Continuously stir the mixture as you add warm chicken stock, 1/2 cup at a time, until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked al dente and the stock is absorbed into the rice. Remove the pan from heat and add Parmesan and parsley for garnish. Serve immediately.
