10 Minute Microwave Risotto – Tonight’s Tea

10 Minute Microwave Risotto

This is a delicious risotto style dish that is quick and easy to prepare. It’s an easy dinner and very economical. Not for the risotto purists!


* 450g rice (long or short grain)
* 200ml chicken stock
* 50g sharp cheddar cheese, grated
* 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

Preparation method

1. Place the rice and chicken stock in a large bowl and microwave for long enough to make the rice cooked to your taste – about 5 minutes.
2. When cooked, mix in the cheese and parsley and serve piping hot.

I’ve put some diced bacon with this but it can also be a vegetarian dish using vege stock instead of chicken.

Tonight I’m having this risotto with a grilled steak and some salad!

    Hi Kylie,
    Would you need to double the amount of stock used, or how much extra do you think?

    It sounds delicious, and so very easy to make.

    Have a great week,

    It should be fine as the recipe says, I was doing it just for one person and didn't put in enough stock. The first time I made it, it was fine.
