      I used about 6 large garlic cloves and closer to 1 cup of onion. I did not use the olive oil (forgot it!), and used about half broth and half water. In a saucepan, I did the sauteing of the veggies and the rice, added the wine and let it cook off, and then tossed the whole thing into my rice cooker. I added the liquid and left it to cook, but came back to it 2-3 times during cooking to add more liquid (I had hot water from my electric kettle). When the rice cooker beeped to signify the end of cooking, I opened it up and stirred in more liquid and pushed the cook button again. The whole cooking time took about an hour. About 15 minutes before serving time, I stirred in a bit more liquid and the cheese, then put some fish in the steamer tray for the top of the rice cooker. I served the risotto over the fish with peas on the side, which I cooked in the saucepan I used to start the risotto, so this made for a meal with a pretty low impact on the kitchen (although it tasted like something far more involved). I guess it's not really authentic if you use the rice cooker, but it really simplifies things because even though it's a longish cooking time, you really don't need to tend it because there's no risk of boiling over, sticking, or overcooking. And you can just add broth/water whenever you breeze through the kitchen occasionally while doing other things. The only other thing I might do is stir in some baby spinach leaves right before serving for a nice splash of color. Thanks. --M

      This is a fantastic risotto recipe. I make risotto often and this was a great change from the typical parmesan/chicken flavor. I omitted the saffron and the dish still had a great flavor. I reduced the rice to 1 cup, and the liquids to a total of 3 cups; and that produced 2 large servings. Thanks for posting!

      Great! First Risotto I've ever cooked, and it tasted fantastic. Only complaint was that I halved the recipe to make 3-4 serves so I'd have some leftovers for lunch, but in reality I only got two serves out of it.
