Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto
Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto is creamy and easy to make. Let the Instant Pot do all the work! Just a 7 minute cook time for this creamy risotto. Don’t let the rich taste of this dish fool you – there is no butter or cream involved! But you won’t even miss it. It’s easy enough for a weeknight but decadent enough for a date night!
What You’ll Need for this Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto:
- Olive Oil
- Onion and Garlic
- Fresh sliced mushrooms – I like to use Baby Bella but any sliced white mushrooms will do.
- Dry White Wine
- Water or Broth
- Finely grated Parmesan Cheese
- Fresh Chives for a garnish
Making risotto in the Instant Pot is so easy thanks to the sauté function. We start by sautéing our ingredients. First softening the onion. Then adding the garlic and toasting the rice and adding the wine to absorb and cook off the alcohol. Finally add the water and set the Instant Pot to manual high pressure. Super easy. Once the IP comes to pressure and finishes cooking, we’ll quick release the pressure.
The final step is easy. Just stir in the grated parmesan cheese, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with chives. Serve up the risotto and enjoy! I love this as a main dish or it’s excellent as a side.
