Yes, yes I know. I am clearly obsessed with the Instant Pot! This post is not sponsored by Instant Pot. I truly love this device. For those of you who do not have an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, I seriously encourage you to get one. A few of my friends took advantage this past week during the Amazon Prime Day sale. I am sure they will not regret it!
Like most rice, risotto is a dish that usually takes 18-20 minutes to make. That is the rice by itself. With the Instant Pot you can cut this timing in half. Stay Snatched recipes are quick, easy, and great for on-the-go lifestyles. The Instant Pot is a great gadget for quick weeknight dinners. This helps make it easy to whip up gourmet-ish style meals in a fraction of the time.
Now onto the risotto. I usually have risotto while dining out and usually at somewhat fancy restaurants. As a foodie, I am no stranger to this scene. Risotto is the perfect comfort food dish. I have had it prepped many different ways. This recipe is loaded with protein filled shrimp and nutritious green veggies.
Everything for this recipe is done using only ONE pot!
