salt, to taste
3 cloves garlic, minced, divided
1 cup white rice
1/4 cup chiffonaded basil

2 Gardein chick'n scallopini patties
1/4 cup pinot grigio white wine
1/2 medium lemon, juice of
2 tablespoons vegan mozzarella cheese (I use Daiya)
chiffonaded basil, for garnish

What you do: 

[u]Risotto[/u]:1. In a bowl, place mushrooms. Cover with boiling water and let sit for 10 minutes, or until soft. Remove from water and slice, reserving the water. (If using bullion to make vegetable broth, add 1 bouillon cube to mushroom soaking water and enough additional water to for 2 cups total.)
2. Tn a skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add onions and salt; saute until the onions are soft.
3. Add another 2 tablespoons of oil, mushrooms, and garlic; saute 5 minutes.
4. Add the rice, basil, parsley, rosemary, vegan Parmesan, pepper, and salt; saute until the rice starts to brown, stirring constantly.
5. Add a ladle full of broth at a time, stirring until all the liquid has been absorbed. Repeat the process until all the broth has been used.
[u]Chickn[/u]:1. To a skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add onion and saute until caramelized.
2. Stir in garlic and thyme, then add scallopini; cook until scallopini is golden brown.
3. Add wine to deglaze. As wine is cooking down, add lemon juice. Remove scallopini, slice in thin strips, then transfer to oven-proof pan.
4. Top strips with caramelized onions, wine reduction, and vegan mozzarella; bake in oven at 200 degrees F to melt cheese, about 5 minutes.
5. Remove and place atop risotto. Sprinkle basil over dish.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

WHY didn't I make more!?  This was very delicious.  I used fresh mushrooms because it was what I had, and more truthfully, I was intimidated by the dried mushroom rehydration process.The seasoning was great and I followed the chick'n directions to the letter and that too was delightful.  I will make this again when I'm cooking to impress. Thank you and well done.

Thank you for the kind words!
