How to Make Parmesan Rissoto Stuffed Peppers
Add butter and oil to the inner pot and turn on the saute mode. Add chopped onions and saute for 1-2 minutes before adding the mushrooms.
Stir the mushrooms in and saute for another minute.
Pour the rice into the inner pot and stir on saute mode for 2-3 minutes.
Add in the chicken stock a little at a time, scraping the bottom of the pot.
Cut the tops off of the peppers, and remove the seeds. Arrange peppers in a pan that will fit in the inner pot.
Pour water into the inner pot, and then add the trivet to the pot. Scoop risotto mixture into the peppers. It will have a lot of liquid in it. Add any extra mixture to additional peppers, to the pan the peppers are in, or to an extra pan. Lower the pan with the peppers into the Instant Pot with a sling.
Set the pressure valve to sealing, and then set for a manual high-pressure time of 5 minutes.
At the end of the cooking time, allow for a quick pressure release.
Makes 4 servings.
What to Serve With Stuffed Peppers?
Although I love to eat stuffed peppers on their own, sometimes I need a little more to go with them especially if I am serving them to guests. If you feel like your dish needs something else to go with it, try some of these ideas:
- Garlic Roasted Potatoe Wedges
- Salad with lemon and Feta Cheese
- Avocado Caprese Salad
- Pita Bread
- Cheese Plate
- Baked Zucchini Fries
