Episode 359: Instant Pot Risotto, Instant Pot Quinoa, and Vaccinations

This week, in food news: “Free Doughnuts Were Never the Problem” via FoodandWine.com

In What’s for Dinner? this week, Marisa is making Instant Pot risotto:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 3/4 cups arborio rice
  • 4 1/3 cups hot broth (I used reconstituted better than bouillon)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2-4 tablespoons Parmesan or Pecorino Romano
  • Directions: Saute onions and garlic in oil, toast rice, add liquid, high pressure for 6 minutes, manual pressure release, stir in peas and cheese, serve.

Coincidentally, in How’d You Make That? Joy’s got Instant Pot quinoa.

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 minute high pressure, let stand 12 minutes.
