Traditionally, risotto is made using arborio or carnaroli rice renowned for their sticky, starchy qualities. This recipe adds a twist by using Veetee microwaveable Thai Jasmine rice instead which requires far less stirring time and works just as well!

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, before adding the onions. Sauté until softened, then add the garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes.

  5. Mix the mascarpone and Parmesan cheese into the rice, until thoroughly combined. Season to taste.
  6. Serve hot, with additional Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
