This is a delicious take on risotto, made completely in the microwave.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 3 minutes. Stir in rice, and microwave at HIGH 2 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in 2 3/4 cups broth and 1/4 cup wine. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. (Do not vent.) Microwave at HIGH 9 minutes. Carefully swirl bowl without uncovering (to incorporate the mixture), and microwave at HIGH 8 minutes. Carefully remove and discard plastic wrap. Stir in cheese and 1/4 cup chicken broth, stirring 30 seconds to 1 minute or until creamy. Add up to 1/4 cup additional broth, 1 Tbsp. at a time, for desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

Stir in red peppers and spinach, and microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until spinach is wilted.

Step 4

Note: We tested with a 1,100-watt microwave oven and a 1 1/2-liter glass bowl. We found that press-and-seal plastic wrap will not work in this application.
