I'd use water and add a boullione cube. Or use premade broth or plain water.

You could. It will have a little tang to it. I'd do 1/4 c. sour cream diluted with 1/4 c. water.

thank u! recently had foot surgery. can't drive myself back to the store to pick some up. should I just use water only instead?

Just water would probably also work but it will just be a little bland-er. If it's a boxed risotto they're probably calling for milk to mimic the "creaminess" a slow-cooked risotto would have that a boxed one might not.

So if you just use water it may end up more like regular rice or rice-a-roni.
