  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup peas (defrosted, if frozen)
  • 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (drained and blotted dry)

  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus additional for serving
  • 1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley


  • Press Saute button on Instant Pot. Add olive oil to pot.
  • When the pot is hot, add mushrooms. Cooking, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender and any liquid they release has evaporated.
  • Mix in shallots and season to taste with salt and pepper, then cook until the shallots begin to turn translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and butter, then cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds), stirring constantly.
  • Stir in Arborio rice, mixing to coat with other ingredients. Add white wine and cook until liquid is mostly evaporated, stirring constantly.
  • Add broth and mix well. Turn off Instant Pot (press Cancel).
  • Secure lid and set pressure release valve to sealing. Select Pressure Cook (or Manual) button, then set to High Pressure for 6 minutes.
  • When time is up, do a Quick Release, then open lid.
  • Stir in peas, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon zest and juice. Mix in Parmesan cheese, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve risotto sprinkled with additional Parmesan cheese and parsley. Enjoy!
