Servings 4 people


  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds mushrooms cleaned and thickly sliced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 medium yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 medium cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 1/2 cups risotto rice
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 quart chicken, beef or vegetable stock
  • 1 ounce finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • Handful finely minced parsley


  • Cook the mushrooms: Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a pressure cooker (if using an electric one, set to "sauté"). Cook the mushrooms until softened, about 8 minutes.
  • Add onion, garlic and rice: Add the onion and garlic and cook for one minute. Add the rice and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the outside of the rice is translucent and the inside looks milky.
  • Add the liquids: Add the white wine and soy sauce. Stir well and cook until the alcohol smell is gone and the wine is almost evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in the stock and close the pressure cooker.
  • Cook the risotto: Cook on low pressure for 5 minutes. Release the pressure by running cool water over the lid (for a stovetop pressure cooker) or by using the release valve (on an electric pressure cooker). (If the risotto is still very soupy, remove a few ladles of liquid.)
  • Make the risotto creamy: Cook the risotto for an additional 1-2 minutes with the lid open, stirring constantly, until creamy (for electric pressure cooker: use the sauté setting). Add the Parmesan and butter, stir once or twice (but don't stir in completely!). Close the lid (but do not cook any further!) and rest for 2 minutes. Now add the parsley and stir well. Serve immediately with extra cheese.
