Oven Risotto

My family loves risotto. I have made it many times on the stove top, but it is time consuming and it is not something you can walk away from. You have to watch it constantly, because of this I rarely made risotto

That was until several years ago when I saw an oven version of risotto in the Martha Stewart Everyday Foods magazine.  I knew this was something I wanted to try because making it in the oven would make it so much easier.  I would not have to watch it constantly. I instantly loved this idea. It is so good and so easy.

I have made this recipe many times since then. I also have several versions of it including my sausage tomato version. Next week I will post my sweet potato version. I made that version recently and even my son, who is a picky eater, liked the sweet potato version.

I use this oven risotto as a meatless meal. I serve it with a salad and/or a vegetable and it makes a nice meal that my whole family enjoys.

  1. Love this! I’ve only ever made risotto on the stove, but that might have to change =D.

  2. Oooh, we love risotto! Will definitely have to try this sometime!

  3. I have never tried risotto but I know I would totally love it…I think I’ll make it next week!!

  4. Ooooh! I really dig risotto, though it’s been a bit scarce since the toddler started getting needy whenever my hands were occupied. (Or naughty, depends on the day.) I’ve tried it in the microwave, but it wasn’t quite the same. Looking forward to giving this a try soon! I linked to it on my weekly roundup – post is under my name. Thanks!!

  5. Oh wow, I’ve tried risotto in the rice cooker and it didn’t turn out for me. Never thought of trying it in the oven! We make it at least once a month, so this is a valuable tip!

  6. Great recipe. Thank you! However, it simply isn’t enough…have you ever doubled or tripled? I know that can be tricky with liquid and rice…I’d love to know if you’ve done that! Thanks again!

    • Yes, I have doubled this many times and it works great. I have never tripled it, so I can’t say for sure on that, but doubling it works fine. I hope you enjoy it.
