  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, or as needed

  • 1 large shallot, minced, or more to taste

  • 1 cup Arborio rice

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • 2 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth

  • 1 (8 ounce) package white button mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 (8 ounce) package baby bella mushrooms, sliced

  • garlic salt and pepper to taste

  • cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot) and select Saute function. Add oil and shallots to the hot pot. Saute until shallot is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add rice and stir until toasted, about 2 minutes. Pour in wine and cook until liquid evaporates. Add broth and stir until well combined.

  2. 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.

  3. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  4. Meanwhile, heat up more olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add mushrooms, garlic salt, and pepper. Saute until mushrooms are tender and have released their juices, about 5 minutes.

  5. Add risotto to the mushrooms. Stir in Parmesan cheese and chives until the cheese has melted. Adjust seasoning as needed.


You can substitute 1 small onion for the shallot.
