  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter or cooking oil of choice
  • 2 shallots finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 cups of Arborio Rice
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 4 ½ cups of chicken or vegetable broth or 1L
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup frozen edamame
  • 1 cup baby spinach roughly chopped
  • salt and butter to taste


  • Heat the butter or cooking oil of choice on the sauté setting of your pot. Once hot, add in the shallots, along with a good pinch of salt. Sauté over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until translucent, being sure not to brown the onions
  • Add the garlic and sauté for about another minute
  • Add the rice, and stir to coat in the butter and onion mixture
  • Add the wine, and cook until the liquid has almost all disappeared, about 1 minute
  • Add 4 cups of the stock (set aside the extra ½ cup). Pop on the pressure cooker lid, bring to high pressure and start your timer for 6 minutes
  • After 6 minutes, use the quick release valve on your cooker to release the pressure. Remove the lid and add in the extra stock, parmesan, 1 tablespoon butter, frozen edamame and chopped spinach. Stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve
  • Garnish with fresh parmesan and finely chopped parsley (optional)
  • For stove top alternative please see the notes


To do this on the stove top just follow the instructions, but instead of adding the stock all at once in step 5, add about ½ cup at a time, until the liquid disappears, and then add another ½ cup until all the stock has been used.You may need more stock. After about 30 minutes it should be all cooked, and you can continue from step 6
