Expert Tips

  • The Roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts go in the dish after it’s cooked. They do not go in the Instant Pot with the other ingredients.
  • If you’re serving the risotto as a main dish, you can add sauted chopped bacon, or chicken to this dish. You can also top with chives or other favorite toppings.
  • I used Organic Roasted Red Peppers, and Organic marinated artichoke hearts in this dish. You can find them at your local Fresh, or Organic store. You can also use Organic chopped mushrooms. We used ready-to harvest mushrooms using mushroom from grow kits to save time, and they had a great flavor.

Variations

  • Spinach and Parmesan Risotto: Add fresh spinach and Parmesan cheese to the Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto for a vibrant and cheesy twist.
  • Truffle Oil Infused Risotto: Elevate the flavor with a drizzle of truffle oil just before serving, providing a luxurious and aromatic touch to the classic mushroom risotto.
  • Wild Mushroom Blend Risotto: Experiment with a mix of wild mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster, and chanterelle, for a diverse and earthy flavor profile.
  • Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Risotto: Incorporate sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil to the risotto for a burst of Mediterranean-inspired flavors, adding a delightful sweetness and herbal notes.

Storage Instructions

  • Cool Before Refrigerating: Allow the risotto to cool to room temperature before refrigerating. This prevents condensation, maintaining the ideal texture.
  • Airtight Container: Transfer the leftover risotto into an airtight container. Minimize exposure to air to preserve its flavor and prevent absorption of odors from the refrigerator.
  • Label and Date: Label the container with the date of preparation. Consume the leftovers within 3-4 days for the best quality.
  • Reheating: Reheat the risotto on the stovetop or in the microwave, adding a splash of broth or water to maintain its creamy consistency.

What To Serve With This Recipe

  • Air Fryer Stuffed Chicken Breast: Juicy and flavor-packed air-fried stuffed chicken breast provides a delicious protein addition that perfectly balances the creamy risotto.
  • Seared Scallops or Shrimp: Elevate the meal with seared scallops or shrimp, adding a touch of seafood decadence that pairs exceptionally well with the mushroom-infused risotto.
  • Steamed Vegetables: Steamed vegetables such as asparagus, cherry tomatoes, or Brussels sprouts offer a colorful and nutritious side that complements the creamy texture of the risotto.
  • Garlic Bread or Baguette: Serve alongside warm garlic bread or a crusty baguette for a delightful contrast in textures and flavors.
  • Fresh Green Salad: A crisp green salad with a zesty vinaigrette provides a refreshing contrast, balancing the richness of the mushroom risotto.

FAQ’S

Can I Use Any Type Of Mushrooms For This Risotto?

Absolutely! Experiment with your favorite mushrooms or a mix of varieties for a diverse and rich flavor profile.

How Do I Prevent The Risotto From Becoming Too Thick Or Mushy?
