Directions

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the chopped onion and shortening. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, stirring once after 2 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and stir to coat the grains with the oil. Microwave on high for 4 more minutes.
  3. Add the chicken broth and return bowl to microwave. Cook the rice on high for 18 minutes, stirring once half way through. Stir again before the last 2 minutes and check to see that the liquid is almost all absorbed.
  4. Take the bowl from the microwave and let the rice absorb the last of the liquid, stirring 2 or 3 times.
  5. Add the cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Before serving, you may add whatever mined herbs you like, swirl in a pat or butter, or some milk or cream if you like a creamier risotto.
