  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, bring the stock to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.

Add 1 cup (250ml) hot stock mixture and cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until stock is absorbed. Continue adding the stock, in batches, cooking and stirring until stock evaporates, for 10 mins or until risoni is tender and liquid is almost evaporated.
