Basic Microwave Risotto

"Microwave Risotto is great because of its forgiving nature; if you forget it for a half hour, nothing is lost. Also, it is a wonderful clean-out-the-fridge, use-your-imagination, I-just-bounced-five-checks recipe. It reheats well too. You can use margarine or olive oil in place of the butter, and you can use apple juice or white grape juice in place of the wine."


* 3 tablespoons butter
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 1 onion, chopped
* 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
* 1 cup uncooked Arborio rice
* 3/4 cup white wine
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1. In a 3 quart, microwave safe casserole dish combine butter, garlic and onion. Place dish in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes.

2. Place vegetable broth in a microwave safe dish. Heat on microwave until the broth is hot but not boiling (approximately 2 minutes).

3. Stir the rice and broth 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.

Microwave Accessories

Always use items that are made for use in the microwave only.In addition to these items, you can safely use porcelain wares that are not decorated with gold or silver.

When it comes to plastics and glass, make sure they are microwave safe. Not all plastic and glass items can be safely used in the microwave. As a general rule of thumb, if the utensil heats up before the food does, it is probably not a good idea to use it in the microwave; but first check the product instructions.

If you use plastic wrap over the food, do not allow it to come into contact with the food. Instead, we recommend that you use a splatter cover, which will help retain moisture while it does its job of venting the heat produced in the food by the microwaves.

Most microwave ovens are not made to be used with metal foil, metal wares, or plates with metallic designs in gold or silver. Consult your microwave oven instruction guide for what utensils are safe to use.

In addition, cooking times vary from one type of microwave oven to the next, due to differences in power. Your microwave oven manual will provide you with a guide. When in doubt, cook for less time, check the food for doneness, and cook longer if you have to.
