  • 4 tsp oil I use avocado oil
  • 1/2 onion , chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic , chopped
  • 6 cups mushrooms , cut into pieces (white, shitake, portabella, oyster or a mixture)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups arborio rice
  • 4.5 cups broth chicken or vegetable, I suggest low sodium or homemade
  • 2 cups greens spinach, kale, mixed greens
  1. Press the Saute button on the Instant Pot. Add 3 tsp oil, garlic and onion and saute for 1-2 minutes.

  2. Add mushrooms and last tsp of oil. Cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add 2 tbsp water and keep stirring - cook for 2 more minutes.

  3. Add spices, rice and broth. Hit cancel. Place lid on pressure cooker with the valve sealed. Press Manual and adjust cooking time to 6 minutes on high.

  4. Once cooking time has finished, hit cancel. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and manually release pressure. If it's too high right away, give it a couple of minutes before trying again. When pressure is down, open the lid and add greens. Mix in with a spoon; because the risotto is hot, it will help wilt the leaves. Mix and top off with black pepper to taste. Add a pat of butter for additional creaminess - optional.
