Bring the stock to a simmer in a heavy saucepan. Remove from heat. Cover to

Heat the sherry and oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add the shallots and saute until tender and beginning to brown, about 5
minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the mushrooms and thyme and saute
for 5 minutes. Add the rice and stir well.

Add enough stock just to cover. Stir until most of the stock is absorbed.

Add enough stock to cover again. Continue stirring and adding stock as
necessary until the rice is tender but still firm to the bite, about 20
minutes. Remove from heat.

Puree the water and cashews in a processor until smooth. Add to the rice
mixture along with the nutmeg. Cook, stirring, over low heat for 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle with chives and lemon zest.
