How to Make Microwave Risotto with Winter Squash, Maple Syrup and Sage
Forget everything you thought you knew about making risotto. This money-saving dish, which rings in at less than $2 per serving, comes together in minutes with the help of a microwave—no constant stirring not required.
Microwave ovens vary, so know what to look for in the finished dish. Almost all of the liquid should be absorbed and the grains of rice should be tender but not mushy. If your rice needs more time or there's still too much liquid, add a couple more minutes to the microwaving time, being sure to continue microwaving on medium (50%).
