3 3/4 cups
1 1/4 cups
dried onion flakes

shredded Parmesan cheese
Delicious! Mine was done to perfection in exactly 2 hours. I used a 3qt. slow cooker and that was a perfect size for this. I can't believe that something this simple could come out so flavorful! I will def be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
After 1 3/4 hours it was a gloppy mess that did not resemble risotto.
To Karin - you MUST use Arborio rice - no other type will work!! Only Arborio rice has enough starch to become risotto. (I learned that the hard way!)
Delicious! Since finding this recipe, I've made it weekly. Throw all of the ingredients in the crock pot and two hours later you have an amazing risotto. I've highly recommend this recipe.
I must say...I was extremely skeptical when first reading this recipe. I did not think risotto could be this easy and this good...but it turned out absolutely delicious! I used low sodium chicken broth to keep it a little healthier and it was still amazing. I also used Asiago cheese instead of Parmesean just because thats what I had on hand. Thank you for such a scrumptious and easy recipe!
Wow!! So glad i stumbled upon this recipe when I was not even looking for anything like it. This is AMAZING! Tastes just like risotto and is so extremely easy. I will be making this often. I followed the directions exactly except i used jarred garlic.
They make this on Hell's Kitchen all the time and my boyfriend and I wanted to know what all the rave was. I saw that it could be made in the slow cooker & thought how much easier could it get. We've never had risotto so we're not sure if it turned out to be the same consistency that it should be but we enjoyed it. Delicious with our Grilled Salmon and Fresh Asparagus Soup.
I love this recipe, it worked great even with a couple little tweaks to make it vegan. I had roasted shallots on hand so I used those instead of the onion flakes. It would be easy to vary this with different herbs, etc. I have always avoided making risotto but now we can have it anytime.
