Instant Pot Parmesan Risotto–Creamy, no fuss and no stir risotto made in just a few minutes in your electric pressure cooker.
Instant Pot Parmesan Risotto Recipe
One of my favorite comfort foods is risotto. I love the creamy consistency but I don’t love all the stirring and babysitting that it takes when made on the stovetop. That’s why making risotto in the Instant Pot or slow cooker is a game changer for risotto lovers. You can have risotto without a lot of fuss.
Michelle includes family friendly recipes such as California Frittata Bake, Creamy Chicken and Broccoli over Rice, Insalata Caprese Mini Meatballs, Coconut Curry Sea Bass, and Asian Mushroom Sweet Potato Noodles, in the book, with a selection of celiac, vegetarian, and paleo recipes. Michelle says, “The more you cook, the more you’ll realize how versatile the Instant Pot® really is. In this book, you’ll find everything you need to know about how to use your Instant Pot®, including how to clean it, how to use the buttons, and what you should have on hand to make your dishes even better.
As a new user of the Instant Pot I really appreciated the first chapter which is entitled “Cooking with an Instant Pot.” It explained a few things that were new to me and helped me feel confident that I could try new recipes in the pressure cooker. I’ve already tried a few of the recipes and they are super easy to follow and understand. I really want to try the Fish Tacos and the Creamed Corn and Creamy Key Lime Pie. The cookbook is at an affordable price point and if you’re looking for some new and exciting Instant Pot recipes I think you’ll really enjoy this cookbook!

What Instant Pot/Slow Cooker Did You Use?
For this Instant Pot Parmesan Risotto recipe I used this Instant Pot IP-LUX60 V3 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker. It’s 6 quarts, so the same size as most slow cookers. It cost me around $80 on Amazon. When I made a similar recipe in the slow cooker I used this 6 quart KitchenAid Slow Cooker.

What is Arborio Rice?
Arborio rice is a short-grained, starchy rice that lends itself so well to those creamy risotto dishes. Named for the city it was originally grown in, Arborio rice blends well with a multitude of flavors. Not only do savory dishes work well with this variety, but Arborio rice is also a great choice for rice pudding.
