Normally I’m not big on microwave cooking – stop, stir, restart, repeat x infinity – but seeing as the oven-baked risotto recipes in Vegan Italiano also require constant babysitting, I decided to give the microwave version a try. And you know what? It actually wasn’t that bad!

I had just enough time to make some veggie broth during the first few cooking cycles, and the last few went by quickly enough. All in all, it took about thirty minutes to prepare. Tasty, too.

I tried dressing the risotto up by sprinkling some extra saffron on top for the photo, but the result is reminiscent of teeny tiny little pond worms, don’t you think? Weird and not a little gross. Saffron, why you so funny looking?
