How To Make Instant Pot Risotto

Looking for an easy side dish? Here’s a 20-minute instant pot risotto cooked in chicken broth, seasoned with garlic and thyme, then sprinkled with Parmesan.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Pressure Release Time: 10 minutes
Total: 20 minutes

Optional Topping:

  • crispy bacon
  • peas

Instructions

  1. Turn the Instant Pot to saute and add the butter and onions.

  2. Cook and stir until onions are translucent.

  3. Add the rice, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often, until the edges of the rice are just translucent.

  4. Add the chicken broth to the pot and scrape the bottom well to remove any bits that may be stuck on.

  5. Turn the Instant Pot off, and with the vent in the venting position, put the lid on. Turn the valve to sealing, select Manual or Pressure Cook for 5 minutes. The Instant Pot will take about 5 minutes to build pressure and begin counting down.

  6. When the cooking time is over, turn the Instant Pot off and let the pressure release naturally for at least 10 minutes. Open the vent, then remove the lid.

  7. Stir in Parmesan cheese and any toppings as desired.
