How to make slow cooker risotto

Print this recipe
So many people love risotto, yet so few people enjoy making it. It's not hard to see why. Risotto is all about pampering the dish, which includes, among other things, stirring it for the entire 20 to 30 minutes it takes to cook. As you'll see in the recipe below, however, you don't have to go to all that trouble. Just pour everything into a slow cooker and come back a little while later to perfectly cooked risotto.
This recipe is for a basic risotto, but don't let that stop you from adding whatever you need to it. For instance, chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, asparagus would all work wonderfully. Because these items can add to the liquid in the slow cooker or take away from it, add them in fully cooked at the end. This will make sure they don't detract from the creamy goodness of this delicious risotto but will still allow you to make this recipe whatever you want it to be.
