Was Yummy definitely doing this again. I replaced 500mls of chicken stock with 500mls of white wine and put the rest of 1.5lts chicken stock. Also added dried Italian herbs and garlic powder.

I would suggest a shorter cooking time – largely dependant on your slow cooker. I only cooked it for 3 hours and it was done.
Flavour was spot on
Served with some cracked pepper.

I was disappointed too. I wish i has read the comments before i started! It was disgusting, sadly. The texture was not at all like risotto. I wouldn’t make it again!

Disappointed. The rice had turned to mush after 4 hours. Lovely flavour and aroma, just not a risotto texture. More like baby food unfortunately.

So delicious. We didn’t use the pine nuts and added a little bit more cream. Perfect.

I added sliced mushrooms and left out the pine nuts. Very tasty!
