Do you love creamy risotto but hate having to babysit it on the stove? This quick and easy recipe for instant pot risotto cooks in just 7 minutes. The best part? No babysitting!
I was skeptical at first, but the instant pot electric pressure cooker really does work wonders with arborio rice, producing a creamy and flavorful risotto. Everyone will think you hand stirred it the whole time, slowly pouring in the chicken broth (which you can totally make in the instant pot, too), until it’s just the right consistency.
I love that this recipe is meatless and can be made vegetarian by just switching out the chicken stock for vegetable stock. The mushrooms make it hearty and it’s surprisingly kid-friendly. Thank you giant bowl of rice. Mommy win!
