Bestsellers for Instant Pots
If you love risotto, but dread the constant stirring and monitoring required to make it on the stovetop, you may be asking yourself: Can I use an Instant Pot to make risotto? The answer is a resounding yes! Not only can you use your Instant Pot to make a delicious, creamy risotto in a fraction of the time, but it's also much easier than traditional stovetop methods. Here's how:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup arborio rice
- 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1/2 cup white wine (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Optional: chopped fresh herbs for garnish
Step 1: Turn on your Instant Pot and press the Saute button. Add one tablespoon of olive oil and let it heat up for a minute.
Step 2: Add diced onions and minced garlic. Cook for about two minutes until they are soft and fragrant.
Step 3: Add one cup of arborio rice to the pot and stir well until each grain is coated with oil.
Step 4: Pour in three cups of chicken or vegetable broth along with half a cup of white wine (if using). Stir well.
Step 5: Close the lid on your Instant Pot and set it to Manual mode for six minutes at high pressure. Make sure that your steam release valve is sealed.
Step 6: Once the timer goes off, release any remaining pressure by turning the steam release valve. Open the lid carefully once all steam has escaped.
Step 7: Give your risotto mixture one final stir before adding salt and pepper to taste.
Step8 : Mix in grated Parmesan cheese until fully incorporated into your risotto.
Step 9: If you like, you can add some chopped fresh herbs such as parsley or basil for garnish.
