A cool-weather "slow food," risotto, a creamy rice dish made with Arborio rice (available in well-stocked supermarkets and Italian groceries) is a classic Italian comfort food. Traditionally, it's made by cooking the rice on the stovetop, ladling in hot broth and stirring almost constantly. An easier route to this wonderful dish is simply combine the basic ingredients in a deep casserole dish and bake, giving it a good stir every 15 minutes until done (the entire process takes an hour).

Recipe Ingredients for Baked Risotto

1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
4 cups vegetable broth
2 cloves garlic, very finely minced
2 cups water

Recipe Directions for Baked Risotto

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Combine the rice with the stock, one additional cup of water, and the garlic in a two-quart casserole dish. Cover and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. At the third stirring, stir in one more cup of water. When done, the rice should have a tender and creamy texture.

  3. Let the risotto stand for 5 minutes before serving.
