This microwave risotto recipe by Tastefully Julie offers us a short-hand way to make a classic dish.
Risotto is one of those dishes that typically requires a lot of time and patience to get just right. If you're feeling a little intimidated by the prospect of making risotto the proper way (using a stove), you can test the waters with this simple -- yet delicious -- microwavable alternative, which is especially convenient if you're planning on serving risotto as a side dish, or if you're just cooking at home for yourself and don't want to go through all the hassle of making a "real" risotto.
The ingredients include butter, minced garlic, chopped onions, vegetable broth, Arborio rice, white wine and Asgiago cheese. You can add mushroom or asparagus for extra taste.
