Instant Pot Brown Rice and Mushroom Risotto (Vegan and Gluten-Free)


I never complain about making risotto. In fact, I make it when I want to get something quick on the table. But when I spent over an hour and a half making one with brown rice, I decided to try it out in my Instant Pot. It's awesome!

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
40 mins
Additional Time:
20 mins
Total Time:
1 hrs 15 mins


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 ½ cups cremini mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 cup short-grain brown rice

  • 1 large shallot, minced

  • 1 ¼ cups mushroom broth

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot) and select Saute function. Heat oil; add mushrooms, rice, and shallot, allowing the shallot and mushrooms to saute and the rice to toast just slightly, about 5 minutes. Turn off the Saute function. Stir in broth and wine. Close and lock the lid.

  2. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 23 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  3. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions for 12 minutes. Release any remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  4. Season with salt and pepper. Stir and serve immediately.


I use the Mushroom Broth recipe on this site.

This is a vegan recipe. If you want to add cheese, add it after cooking, not before.
