To make the pickled beetroot, place the beetroot in a bowl. Place the vinegar, sugar and salt in a small pan with 100ml/3½fl oz of water and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and pour it over the beetroot. Leave to rest at room temperature.
To make the risotto, heat the oil in a pan and fry the shallot and garlic for a few minutes, until softened. Add the mushrooms and rice. Pour in the white wine and allow the liquid to be absorbed.
Over a low heat, pour in about 200ml/7fl oz of the stock and stir occasionally. Once all the liquid has been absorbed, taste the rice and if it is still too hard, add the extra stock – you may not need it all.
To finish, add the soy cream, yeast flakes, soy sauce, yeast extract and a squeeze of lemon juice, stir well and check that the risotto is not too dry. It may need more liquid and if you have run out of stock, add a little water.
To garnish, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry all the mushrooms in the oil, except for the cordycep and Paris brown mushrooms. After you have cooked the other mushrooms for a minute, take the pan off the heat and add the cordyceps.
To serve, tear over some kale and top with thinly sliced Paris brown mushrooms.
