Making Spinach and Goat Cheese Risotto in an Instant Pot

An Instant Pot is one of the most popular brands of electric pressure cookers. They are easy to use and your Instant Pot can help you create this delicious Spinach and Goat Cheese Risotto recipe.

If someone were to ask me what kitchen utensil I couldn’t live without—I’d say the pressure cooker. I have two of them, both stainless steel, one an Italian-made jiggle-top and one newer, with a pressure regulator that doesn’t jiggle, a Swiss model: Kuhn-Rikon.

Her favorite pressure-cooked dish is risotto, the creamy Italian rice dish, that cooks in the pressure cooker in only ten minutes. In addition to being a time-saver, the result is perfectly cooked creamy rice, something restaurant chefs fail to achieve with consistency.

Risotto is made with a short fat-grained, starchy white rice, Arborio, which gives risotto it’s creamy texture. Letty combines it with onion, garlic, lemon juice, spinach and soft goat cheese, then tops it with toasted chopped pecans. A quick side dish that will wow company or just add a roll and serve it as a one pot meal.
