Ingredients
  

  • 2 large sweet potatoes halved horizontally
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 2 leeks white part only, thinly sliced
  • 2 shallots finely chopped
  • 1/2 lb fresh wild mushrooms oyster, shiitake, portabella - finely chopped
  • 1 cup Aborio risotto rice
  • 3-1/2 cup vegetable stock

Instructions
 

  • Set the oven to 400 degrees. Cross hatch the flesh of the sweet potato. Brush with olive oil. Set in a shallow baking dish. Roast the potatoes until tender.
  • About 25 minutes before the potatoes are done prepare the risotto. In a small flameproof casserole heat the oil and cook the leeks for 10 minutes stirring often until they are translucent.
  • Add the shallots and mushrooms and stir thoroughly. Cover the pan and cook the vegetables for 10 to 15 minutes or until the mushrooms release their liquid.
