I'm not a big fan of the microwave but it is useful for some things plus it keeps the heat down in the kitchen. This is good for leftover rice but if you need to cook some just for this - start with about 1/2 cup of raw rice.

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.

I discovered this recipe by accident but have been making it ever since for a quick, easy lunch or dinner for one. The tomatoes and spinach soften easily in the microwave and the cheese melts to create a sauce and give the consistency of risotto.

I wanted to create something quick, healthy and easy for my family as a side dish on those hot summer nights. It doesn't take long to cook, so it doesn't heat up my kitchen too much! also great at BBQs and delicious served with fish. This rice dish is also very colorful- great for eating with the eyes.

Porridge for breakfast but done in the rice cooker not on the stove/microwave. A basic rolled oats recipe you can build on.
