Surprisingly, you can make risotto in 15 minutes if you have a pressure cooker, like an Instant Pot.

Risotto can’t be rushed.

Actually, you can make risotto in 15 minutes if you have a pressure cooker, such as an Instant Pot. At first, I was highly skeptical, but tried it out. I was blown away by the results.

If you have a pressure cooker, this is something to try out on a busy weekday night or when it’s too hot for stovetop cooking.
