Can you believe risotto in 6 minutes? It’s true with my Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto recipe (pressure cooker recipe). Creamy and earthy – in just 6 minutes!



  • 2 cups Arborio┬árice
  • 4 cups chicken broth or stock (Vegan substitution: vegetable broth or water)
  • 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion – diced small
  • 1 pint of sliced mushrooms (I used cremini mushrooms)
  • 4 TBS finely grated parmesan cheese (Vegan substitution: omit cheese)


  1. Turn Instant Pot to SAUTE setting and let it heat for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add olive oil and onions and cook for 3 minutes
  3. Add mushrooms and rice and cook for another 5 minutes (stirring constantly)
  4. Add broth and change the Instant Pot setting to MANUAL for 6 minutes.
  5. After 6 minutes, release the steam, open the lid and stir in the parmesan cheese.
