The traditional method for making creamy risotto involves adding the stock or broth to the rice 1/2 cup at a time and stirring constantly. This "hands-off" version calls for baking the rice mixture in a Dutch oven instead of cooking it on the stovetop. We got great results using a cast-iron Dutch oven, but you can use any type of ovenproof Dutch oven. It needs to be one that does not have plastic handles.
