Best Thermomix Risotto recipe
Baked Risotto delicious with Bacon & Pumpkin or you can add mushrooms.

Sharing is caring!

I’d have to say this Riso al Forno (baked risotto) from the cookbook A Little Taste of Italy is the best Thermomix risotto recipe I have ever tasted.

The texture of the risotto being prepared in the Thermo mix and then baked in the oven is perfect. It also makes the most delicious Arancini – we’ve put together a special Arancini Guide for you for best results.

Arancini Thermomix recipe
Some Skinnymixers like to double batch, to ensure they have leftovers for Arancini.

Tips: The pan that you cook the risotto in makes a big difference to cooking time. If you use a ceramic or glass dish in the oven, it could take an additional 30 minutes. It is best to cook this chicken & mushroom risotto in a metal pan with a lid.

A Little Taste of Italy: Riso Al Forno (baked risotto)

Baked Risotto is a recipe that almost everybody cooks at least once in their Thermomix, and while the quick chuck-it-all-in versions are delicious, baking it in the oven gives the most traditional end product. This baked risotto bursts with flavour from the pesto stirred through on serving.
