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.

And in our Wild Card segment, we’re talking about how being vaccinated is and is not affecting our shopping, cooking, and eating lives.

  1. Grew up eating quinoa (mama from Ecuador). This recipe worked for getting that not mushy perfect crunch. Thanks!
