I do risotto in a large (2l?) glass casserole in the m/wave. The base
for 4 is:
2tblsp	olive oil
250g	arborio rice
1 large	onion chopped
2-4 cloves	garlic chopped
700ml	stock

- add oil, rice, onion, 
- give 4 min
- add stock, ingredients that need cooking
- give 4 min
- stir 
- repeat 4 min and stir until ready (usually 4x4min total for me)
- add incredients that don't need cooking (parmesan, cream, spinach,
  wine, ...)
- add topping (parmesan, basic, ...) and serve from the casserole

- only one pot to wash
- you can get other things done in all those 4 minuteses
