VEGAN RISOTTO, PILAF, PILAU

[Rissotto - Braised Rice]
...measure out your rice - I used an arborio rice - Julia says one cup rice to 2 cups water (or stock)...
...saute in a pan with some vegan butter - this cooks the rice flour on the grains and prevents sticking...
...I used vegan chicken bouillon for this recipe...
...just stir in your stock...
...transfer to a casserole - I must admit that this is the first time I've ever cooked rice in the oven - set on the lower third and the boil should be regulated so that the liquid is absorbed within 14-15 minutes...
...Do not touch the rice! - then after that amount of time check by pulling away the rice with the fork to make sure all of the liquid has been absorbed...

...and your Risotto is done...
