  • 1 portion risotto
  • 1 portion stock or water


  • Heat 2-3 tablespoons of stock or water for each cup of risotto in a pan. Use a low-sodium stock to avoid over-salting your dish.
  • When the stock is hot, reduce the heat to medium.
  • Add the risotto and stir gently for 3-4 minutes until the liquid is incorporated and the rice is heated through. 3-4 minutes is for one portion. If you have more risotto, it will take longer.
  • Remove the pot from the stove and serve immediately.


Stock adds a lovely flavor to your risotto, but water will work in a pinch.
Adding a little butter, milk, or cheese to the risotto will also help revive its flavor.
The extra liquid will restore your risottos creamy consistency. If you think you need more than 2-3 tablespoons, feel free to add more as you’re heating the risotto.
If you prefer a crispier texture, use less liquid and add some oil to the pan. You can then saute your risotto and crisp the rice.
