Exotic mushrooms such as shiitakes, hen of the woods, and oysters add earthy flavor and diverse textures that make Wild Mushroom Risotto a quick-and-delicious Instant Pot™ showpiece. For a budget-friendly mushroom, choose any variety of white common mushroom. Cremini and other brown tops may push the flavor a bit too rich for some palates, but if rich and mushroomy is to your fancy, here’s the dish for you!

Instant Pot Wild Mushroom Risotto [Vegan]





Cook Time



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 6 cups vegetable broth, divided
  • 2 cups chopped assorted mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon vegan margarine
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper 


  1. Press the Sauté button on the Instant Pot™ and add the olive oil. Add the onion and sauté until just soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté an additional 30 seconds. Add the rice and sauté 4 minutes or until the rice becomes opaque.
  2. Add 5 cups vegetable broth to the pot. Lock the lid into place, press the Manual button, and adjust timer to 6 minutes. When the timer beeps, quick-release pressure until float valve drops and then unlock lid.
  3. Press the Sauté button on the pot and stir in the remaining broth and the mushrooms. Let the risotto simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the margarine to the risotto and season with salt and pepper just before serving.
