Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

This creamy risotto gets its rich flavor from leeks, wild mushrooms and white wine. Best of all, you can add the broth all at once -- no standing at the stove and stirring throughout!

1 pound mixed wild mushrooms, sliced

3 cloves garlic, finely grated 

3 medium leeks, light green and white parts only, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced 

3 sprigs fresh thyme 

10 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 1/2 cups arborio rice 

1 cup dry white wine  

5 cups low-sodium chicken broth 

1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving 


  1. Add the mushrooms, garlic, leeks, thyme, 6 tablespoons of the butter, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to a 6-quart Instant Pot®. Set the pot to high saute (see Cook's Note) and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have reduced in volume and are beginning to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is opaque but not browning, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the wine and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until most of the wine has been absorbed, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the broth and stir to combine. Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook on low for 15 minutes. 
  3. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release. Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid.
  4. Stir the rice mixture, scraping the bottom to make sure nothing is stuck. Set the pot to high saute and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.  
  5. Turn off the heat, add the Parmesan and remaining 4 tablespoons butter and stir to combine. Serve with additional Parmesan.
