Perfect Risotto for Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jainagirl

If anyone has the Wolfgang Puck pressure cooker from HSN, you know the recipes that came with it are pretty sparse. Here's one I devised for risotto that turned out beyond perfect. Give it a try! Technique is based on green risotto recipe in the instruction book.

We make all types of risotto. I do not use as much oil as he has in the recipe book, but, other than that I follow the amounts he suggests. With pressure cooking always have at least one cup of liquid, whatever liquid you want, spaghetti sauce, chicken stock, wine, whatever, depending on what you are cooking . In the case of this rice, make sure you use Aborio rice. We have made it broccoli cheese, with zucchini, with carrots, a mixture of veggies, just cheese at the end after it has cooked. Experiment. I am off the try making a cheesecake.
