  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select Saute function. Add olive oil when the pot is hot. Add onion; saute, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 the butternut squash and the garlic. Saute, stirring occasionally, until squash is browned on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Push squash mixture to the side of the pot. Add rice and stir to coat. Saute, stirring frequently, until starting to stick to the bottom of the pot, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour wine into the pot and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon.
  3. Pour vegetable broth, mushrooms, red bell pepper, salt, nutmeg, and the rest of the squash into the pot. Stir; close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  4. Cover vent with a towel and twist to release pressure using the quick-release method, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Stir in parsley and top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Baby bella mushrooms can be substituted for the portobello mushrooms if desired.

Delicious - I do not own an InstaPot, so I made this recipe in a traditional high pressure cooker. It is a bit labor intensive but the end result is worth it.

I made this according to the recipe and the cooking instructions didn't work. I followed the instructions to the letter and I got a burn error because there wasn't enough liquid in the pot. I en...
