Easy Pressure Cooker Mushroom Risotto


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1½ cups Arborio rice
  • 3 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 3½ cups chicken stock
  • 8 ounces fresh cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Melt butter and olive oil together in inner steel pot of a pressure cooker set to Sauté on High. Sauté rice, shallots, and fennel seeds in hot oil and butter until shallot softens, 3 to 5 minutes. 
  2. Pour white wine into pot and stir until wine has mostly evaporated, about 1 minute. Add chicken stock, mushrooms, and salt.
  3. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent handle to Sealing. Select Pressure Cook and cook on High Pressure for 4 minutes. Turn steam vent handle to Venting to quick-release pressure. 
  4. Stir risotto until desired creaminess is reached. If you want to loosen the consistency, add a splash of water or chicken stock.
  5. Stir Parmesan cheese and parsley into risotto until cheese is melted and incorporated. Serve immediately. 
Mealthy Tip

Try any variety of mushroom in this recipe. Shiitake, chanterelle, or morel mushrooms make a great risotto.

Serve this dish by itself or alongside your favorite protein like baked chicken or grilled tilapia.

A crisp white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Vinho Verde are great additions to this meal.

Really loved this recipe! Substituted the fennel for Italian seasoning since we aren’t big on that spice. The mixture was still pretty soupy when it was finished, so I left it on keep warm for 15min and it was the perfect risotto texture, will definitely make again!

I was afraid to try this since my only rice dish in the MultiPot so far was a brown rice fail. This was amazing! I cut the fennel seed quantity in half. I will definitely be making this again.

Very enjoyable risotto! I cut back the amount of fennel seed to three-quarter teaspoon and it gave just the right hint of fennel taste in the finished product. I used a nice dry Sauvignon Blanc which worked wonderfully in this recipe. I increased the amount of Parmesan cheese to 1 1/4 cup which gave a creamy or texture to the final result. Definitely a recipe I will do again and again!
