How Weight Watchers friendly is this Garlic Mushroom Risotto recipe?

Due to the rice in this recipe, it is quite hefty in points and would set you back more than 15 per portion.

However, you could always replace half of the risotto rice with a vegetable version, such as cauliflower rice. You’d need to adjust the cooking time, but this would mean you could enjoy this tasty meal without using tons of points!

How many Calories are in this Garlic Mushroom Risotto?

This Garlic Mushroom Risotto has less than 700 Calories per portion. It’s really rich and tastes sooooo indulgent.

Why not treat yourself to it for a special dinner party meal?

  1. Hi! Loving the new Actifry recipes 😊 I have the original/old Actifry, not the express one. How long would I need to leave the timings? Thank you x

  2. This recipe is fantastic! and will become firm fav!! No standing around, and now have made this and the Firecracker Chicken in my Actifry and both were brilliant. More recipes for the Actifry please!! Maybe there are more but I could not find them?????
    Big thanks to Nom Nom Nom!

  3. Is there something I can replace the henderson’s relish with? I’ve looked and can’t find it in any location shops & im veggie so can’t have Worcester. Thanks!

  4. our actifrys dont have a paddle they just blow the hot air onto the food. can u suggest some receipes for this type of actifry?

    Thanks

  5. Made this the other evening and loved it. So easy to make in the Actifry. After I dished up I added some roasted chicken breast on the top. Was enough for my hubby and I and a portion for the freezer. Would definitely recommend.

  6. Hi, I tried this recipe in my actifry express xl but the rice didn’t cook – I followed the recipe exactly but ended up having to finish it in the hob! Any ideas where I went wrong? It was delicious!

  7. I was thinking of adding bacon to this, at what stage would I add this? I’m thinking for the last ten minutes or so? Thank you.

  8. I found this too vinegar-y too, spoiled it for me. Also can you confirm is this for 2 people or 4?
    It seems like a lot for 2.
    Thanks!

  9. Hi

    would you have instructions please how to cook this in a slow cooker please as i don’t have actifry only,

    Thanks

    Niki

  10. hi jane

    Thanks for replying,may seem like a silly question but would i cook my rice first before adding,I’m a newby first week following plan and new too this cooking😁 thanks again

  11. Does this definitely only serve 2? I’ve just made it and it made 3 very generous portions, could easily serve 4 as 75g is the recommended individual portion of rice?
    Delicious recipe though!

  12. Yummy! I missed out the vinegar by accident but it doesn’t seem to have spoilt the dish, it’s delicious! I needed a bit more liquid than stated but it came out brilliant. Thanks for a lovely recipe 🙂 xx

  13. Hi

    Is it at all possible to make this without an Actifry?

    I bought all the ingredients not realising I needed an Actifry :-/

  14. Fantastic recipe. I made this on the stove, adding a few ladles of veg stock at a time. The recipe definitely makes more than two portions!

  15. I have never successfully managed to make risotto but am attempting this tonight. It says 2 stock cubes to 1.4l – my stock cubes each make 190ml. Do i do more stock cubes to make up the 1.4l or less stock ? I am doing it on the hob for 2 people if that makes a difference.

  16. Loved this recipie. Don’t have an XL Actifry and had reservations about putting so much liquid in my machine but it was incredible and so easy!!

    1. Hi Kare,

      We’ve not tried the recipe in one of those so not sure what the settings would be – would be worth trying it out!
