Microwave risotto is great because of its forgiving nature. Also, it is a great clean-out-the-fridge, use-your-imagination, payday-is-tomorrow recipe. It reheats well too. You can use margarine or olive oil in place of the butter, and apple juice or white grape juice in place of the wine.


Serves: 4 

  • 60g butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) vegetable stock
  • 1 cup (170g) uncooked Arborio rice
  • 3/4 cup (190ml) white wine
  • 1/4 cup (30g) grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. In a 3L microwave-safe casserole dish combine butter, garlic and onion. Place dish in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes.
  2. Place vegetable stock in a microwave safe dish. Heat in microwave until the stock is hot but not boiling (approximately 2 minutes).
  3. Stir the rice and stock into the casserole dish with the onion, butter and garlic mixture. Cover the dish tightly and cook on high for 6 minutes.
  4. Stir wine into the rice. Cook on high for 10 minutes more. Most of the liquid should boil off. Stir the cheese into the rice and serve.
