Vegan Instant Pot: Lemon Risotto with Pea Pistou Recipe

Vegan Instant Pot: Lemon Risotto with Pea Pistou Recipe - This risotto has springtime flair to spare, but you can make it any time of year—it uses frozen peas, rather than fresh ones. It’s easy and fast to make (no stirring required), yet it has a sophisticated air. A big swirl of pistou is stirred in after cooking to keep the flavors bright, and it looks pretty, too.

Ingredients for Vegan Instant Pot: Lemon Risotto with Pea Pistou Recipe:

Risotto
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1½ cups Arborio rice
  • ⅓ cup dry white wine
  • Juice of ½ large lemon
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ¾ teaspoon fine sea salt

Pistou
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 bunch chives (about ¾ ounce)
  • ½ cup frozen peas, thawed
  • Finely grated zest and juice of ½ large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions for Vegan Instant Pot: Lemon Risotto with Pea Pistou Recipe:

  1. To make the risotto: Select the Sauté setting on the Instant Pot, add the oil, and heat for 2 minutes. Add the shallots and sauté for about 4 minutes, until softened and just beginning to brown. Stir in the rice and sauté for 1 minute more. Stir in the wine and lemon juice and sauté for about 2 minutes, just until the liquid has evaporated and the rice begins to sizzle in the pot. Stir in the broth and salt. Scrape down the sides of the pot to make sure all of the rice is submerged in the broth.
  2. Secure the lid and set the Pressure Release to Sealing. Press the Cancel button to reset the cooking program. Then select the Manual or Pressure Cook setting and set the cooking time for 5 minutes at high pressure. (The pot will take about 10 minutes to come up to pressure before the cooking program begins.)
  3. While the risotto is cooking, make the pistou: Combine all of the pistou ingredients in a mini chopper or mortar and pestle. If using a mini chopper, process in 1-second pulses until the mixture becomes a fairly smooth puree. If using a mortar and pestle, first use the pestle to crush the garlic with the salt, then mash in the chives, then the peas, and finally stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and oil.
  4. When the cooking program ends, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then move the Pressure Release to Venting to release any remaining steam. Open the pot and stir in the pistou, leaving some of it unincorporated so there are pockets of pistou throughout.
  5. Spoon the risotto into bowls and serve immediately.
