  2. 3 - garlic cloves, peeled, thinly sliced
  3. 6 - thyme sprigs
  4. 1/4 - tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  5. 1/4 - cup plus 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  6. 1 3/4 - tsp. (or more) kosher salt, divided
  7. 1 - medium onion, finely chopped
  8. 1 - cup arborio rice
  9. 1/2 - tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  10. 1/2 - cup dry vermouth or white wine
  11. 3 cups - homemade chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth, divided
  12. 2 - oz. finely grated Parmesan (about 1 cup)
  13. 2 - Tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  14. 1/2 - tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  15. 1/3 - cup coarsely chopped parsley leaves


Step 1
Place racks in bottom third and middle of oven; preheat to 350°F. Toss mushrooms, garlic, thyme, red pepper flakes, 1/4 cup oil, and 1/2 tsp. salt on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast on bottom rack, tossing halfway through, until deeply golden brown and crisped, 25–30 minutes.

Step 2
Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large ovenproof Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium-high. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened and slightly translucent, 3–5 minutes. Stir in rice; season with pepper and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until some grains are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add vermouth, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until pan is almost dry, about 2 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups stock. Bring to a simmer, then cover and bake in oven until liquid is mostly absorbed but rice is still slightly firm in the center, 16–18 minutes.

Step 3
Return pot to stove and heat over medium. Add remaining 1/2 cup stock and cook, stirring constantly, until rice is tender but still has some bite and sauce is creamy, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan, butter, and lemon zest; season to taste with salt, if needed. Add a little bit of warm water, if needed, until risotto is thick but still pourable.

Step 4
Transfer risotto to a platter. Top with crispy mushrooms and parsley. Drizzle with oil. Serve with lemon wedges alongs
